IMA: move read counter into struct inode
IMA currently allocated an inode integrity structure for every inode in core. This stucture is about 120 bytes long. Most files however (especially on a system which doesn't make use of IMA) will never need any of this space. The problem is that if IMA is enabled we need to know information about the number of readers and the number of writers for every inode on the box. At the moment we collect that information in the per inode iint structure and waste the rest of the space. This patch moves those counters into the struct inode so we can eventually stop allocating an IMA integrity structure except when absolutely needed. This patch does the minimum needed to move the location of the data. Further cleanups, especially the location of counter updates, may still be possible.
