Subject: [PATCH 15/15] xsm: add a default policy to .init.data
Date: Thu,  9 Jun 2016 10:47:18 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1465483638-9489-16-git-send-email-dgdegra@tycho.nsa.gov> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1465483638-9489-1-git-send-email-dgdegra@tycho.nsa.gov>

This adds a Kconfig option and support for including the XSM policy from
tools/flask/policy in the hypervisor so that the bootloader does not
need to provide a policy to get sane behavior from an XSM-enabled
hypervisor.  The policy provided by the bootloader, if present, will
override the built-in policy.

Enabling this option only builds the policy if checkpolicy is available
during compilation of the hypervisor; otherwise, it does nothing.  The
XSM policy is not moved out of tools because that remains the primary
location for installing and configuring the policy.
