Subject: Introduce CONFIG_CHECK_SIGNATURE

Introduce CONFIG_CHECK_SIGNATURE to control inclusion of check_signature()
and avoid problems on platforms that don't have readb().

Let the few legacy (ISA || PCI || X86) drivers that need check_signature()
select CONFIG_CHECK_SIGNATURE.

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
