Subject[PATCH 22/23] MODSIGN: Automatically generate module signing keys if missing
Date
Automatically generate keys for module signing if they're absent so that
allyesconfig doesn't break. The builder should consider generating their own
keyrings, however, so that the keys are appropriately named and any extra keys
required get imported.

Also change the names of the keyring files to modsign.pub and modsign.sec so
that they are then a more obvious what they're about and add a dependency for
the signing rules on the keyring files so that the signatures get regenerated
if the keyrings change.
