Found the issue.

ima_evendigest_init() returns an error and after that IMA is not
initialized. Unfortunately, ima_must_appraise() does not check
ima_policy_flag, so the kernel crashes when ima_match_policy()
tries to evaluate the policy which is not loaded (ima_rules = NULL).

if you add at the beginning of ima_must_appraise()

if (!ima_policy_flag)
return 0;

the kernel should not crash.
