The integrity subsystem is still reporting error messages like this at boot:

  integrity: Unable to open file: /etc/keys/x509_evm.der (-2)

In a previous commit we have downgraded this error to warning:


(this fix is applied everywhere, not only in bionic)

But there's another place (security/integrity/digsig.c) that reports the same
error message that should be also downgraded to warning for consistency.

[Test Case]

No special test case is required, errors are reported at boot if an integrity
policy is enabled.


Downgrade also this error message to a warning.

[Regression Potential]

It is a one-liner that changes a printk() error message, regression potential
is minimal.
