The goal is to ensure that the key was generated by the kernel. In the
absence of the creation data, an attacker could generate a hibernation
image using their own key and trick the kernel into resuming arbitrary
code. We don't have any way to pass secret data from the hibernate
kernel to the resume kernel, so I don't think there's any easy way to
do it with outsideinfo.
