powerpc: ima: get the kexec buffer passed by the previous kernel
Patch series "ima: carry the measurement list across kexec", v8. The TPM PCRs are only reset on a hard reboot. In order to validate a TPM's quote after a soft reboot (eg. kexec -e), the IMA measurement list of the running kernel must be saved and then restored on the subsequent boot, possibly of a different architecture. The existing securityfs binary_runtime_measurements file conveniently provides a serialized format of the IMA measurement list. This patch set serializes the measurement list in this format and restores it. Up to now, the binary_runtime_measurements was defined as architecture native format. The assumption being that userspace could and would handle any architecture conversions. With the ability of carrying the measurement list across kexec, possibly from one architecture to a different one, the per boot architecture information is lost and with it the ability of recalculating the template digest hash. To resolve this problem, without breaking the existing ABI, this patch set introduces the boot command line option "ima_canonical_fmt", which is arbitrarily defined as little endian. The need for this boot command line option will be limited to the existing version 1 format of the binary_runtime_measurements. Subsequent formats will be defined as canonical format (eg. TPM 2.0 support for larger digests). A simplified method of Thiago Bauermann's "kexec buffer handover" patch series for carrying the IMA measurement list across kexec is included in this patch set. The simplified method requires all file measurements be taken prior to executing the kexec load, as subsequent measurements will not be carried across the kexec and restored. This patch (of 10): The IMA kexec buffer allows the currently running kernel to pass the measurement list via a kexec segment to the kernel that will be kexec'd. The second kernel can check whether the previous kernel sent the buffer and retrieve it. This is the architecture-specific part which enables IMA to receive the measurement list passed by the previous kernel. It will be used in the next patch. The change in machine_kexec_64.c is to factor out the logic of removing an FDT memory reservation so that it can be used by remove_ima_buffer.
