integrity: double check iint_cache was initialized

The kernel may be built with multiple LSMs, but only a subset may be
enabled on the boot command line by specifying "lsm=".  Not including
"integrity" on the ordered LSM list may result in a NULL deref.

As reported by Dmitry Vyukov:
in qemu:
qemu-system-x86_64       -enable-kvm     -machine q35,nvdimm -cpu
max,migratable=off -smp 4       -m 4G,slots=4,maxmem=16G        -hda
wheezy.img      -kernel arch/x86/boot/bzImage   -nographic -vga std
 -soundhw all     -usb -usbdevice tablet  -bt hci -bt device:keyboard
   -net user,host=,hostfwd=tcp::10022-:22 -net
nic,model=virtio-net-pci   -object
  -device nvdimm,id=nvdimm1,memdev=pmem1  -append "console=ttyS0
root=/dev/sda earlyprintk=serial rodata=n oops=panic panic_on_warn=1
panic=86400 lsm=smack numa=fake=2 nopcid dummy_hcd.num=8"   -pidfile
vm_pid -m 2G -cpu host

But it crashes on NULL deref in integrity_inode_get during boot:

Since LSMs and IMA may be configured at build time, but not enabled at
run time, panic the system if "integrity" was not initialized before use.
