This looks useful to set a keys/signature/policy for a kernel that wasn't built
to enforce signatures at compile time, so its a good thing to have from a
single-image perspective.

I haven't managed to get IMA working to test this, but its all done by the kexec
core code, so I don't think we're missing anything.

Doesn't memcmp() return 0 if the memory regions are the same?
This would always match the correct magic, rejecting the image.

That's not whats happening, as kexec-file works, so this never matches anything.

sizeof(ARM64_MAGIC) includes the null terminator, but this sequence is output in
head.S using '.ascii' which doesn't include the terminator, (otherwise it
wouldn't fit in the 4byte magic field). The memcmp() here is also consuming the
least significant bytes of the next field.

I think this line should be:
| memcmp(&h->magic, ARM64_MAGIC, sizeof(h->magic)))

Nit: MIN_KIMG_ALIGN ?

You just return in the error cases above but here you goto ... the return
statement at the end. Seems a bit odd.


With the memcmp() thing fixed:
