Originally there was a single measureent unless the filesystem was mounted with
SB_I_VERSION.  With commit a2a2c3c8580a ("ima: Use i_version only when
filesystem supports it") this changed to always re-measure the file if the
filesystem wasn't mounted with SB_I_VERSION.

With commit db1d1e8b9867 ("IMA: use vfs_getattr_nosec to get the i_version")
it's not directly accessing i_version.
