Hello Laks,
You suggested that the if statement of the patch change to the
following:

if ((rbuf_len == 0) || (offset + rbuf_len >= i_size)) {

Unless the file size changed between the time that i_size was set in
ima_calc_file_hash_tfm() and an i_size_read() call was subsequently
issued in a function downstream of the integrity_kernel_read() call,
the rbuf_len returned on the integrity_kernel_read() call will not be
more than i_size - offset. I do not think that it is possible for the
file size to change during this window but nonetheless, if it can, this
would be a different problem and I would not want to include this in my
patch. That said, I do appreciate you taking time to review this patch.
