Subject[RFC PATCH v2 1/2] integrity, KEYS: add a reference to platform keyring
Currently when loading new kernel via kexec_file_load syscall, it is able
to verify the signed PE bzimage against .builtin_trusted_keys or
.secondary_trusted_keys. But the image could be signed with third part
keys which will be provided by platform or firmware as EFI variable (eg.
stored in MokListRT EFI variable), and the keys won't be available in
keyrings mentioned above.

After commit 9dc92c45177a ('integrity: Define a trusted platform keyring')
a .platform keyring is introduced to store the keys provided by platform
or firmware, this keyring is intended to be used for verifying kernel
images being loaded by kexec_file_load syscall. And with a few following
up commits, keys provided by firmware is being loaded into this keyring,
and IMA-appraisal is able to use the keyring to verify kernel images.
IMA is the currently the only user of that keyring.

This patch exposes the .platform, and makes it useable for other
components. For example, kexec_file_load could use this .platform
keyring to verify the kernel image's image.
