Thanks Thiago for reviewing.  I am wondering that this will give two
meanings for NULL. Can we do something like below, there are possibly
two options ?

1. Set IMA_APPRAISED in the iint->flags if is_module_sig_enforced().

OR

2. Let ima_get_action() check for is_module_sig_enforced() when policy
is appraise and func is MODULE_CHECK.

Thanks & Regards,
