For x86 the UEFI "secure" boot requirement is that the user can disable
secure boot. For ARM it is that the user *cannot* disable secure boot.

So in the PC space at least it's "business as usual" providing you jump
that hoop, and hopefully with the tools sorted it'll be viable to sign
your own kernels and use your own keys.
