evm: limit verifying current security.evm integrity
evm_protect_xattr unnecessarily validates the current security.evm integrity, before updating non-evm protected extended attributes and other file metadata. This patch limits validating the current security.evm integrity to evm protected metadata. Signed-off-by: Mimi Zohar <zohar@us.ibm.com>
