Subject[PATCH v4] ima: silence measurement list hexdump during kexec
Date
Direclty calling print_hex_dump() dumps the IMA measurement list on soft
resets (kexec) straight to the syslog (kmsg/dmesg) without considering the
DEBUG flag or the dynamic debug state, causing the output to be always
printed, including during boot time.

Since this output is only valid for IMA debugging, but not necessary on
normal kexec operation, print_hex_dump_debug() adheres to the pr_debug()
behavior: the dump is only printed to syslog when DEBUG is defined or when
explicitly requested by the user through dynamic debugging.

Changelog:
- v3:
- after more in depth testing it was defined that v1 and v2 solution
matches with the expected behavior instead of the one proposed on v3.
- clarify/simplify the patch description.
- v2: guard call with #ifdef instead of using print_hex_dump_debug, which
would not completely solve the case.
- v1: update commit log with more information.
