Daiki Ueno created an issue: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/issues/1338

When FIPS integrity check is enabled, the it currently opens 4 .hmac files: for libgnutls.so.* itself, libnettle.so.*, libhogweed.so.*, and libgmp.so.*. Given those files are part of individual packages (gnutls, nettle, and gmp), it is a bit harder to coordinate the package update. Therefore I propose consolidating those files into a single file, say .integrity with the following format:

format-version = ...

libgnutls = <hmac value>
libnettle = <hmac value>
libhogweed = <hmac value>
libgmp = <hmac value>

We may also consider embedding those information in libgnutls.so.* itself, using a similar technique proposed in [integrity-notes](https://gitlab.com/dueno/integrity-notes).
