    OK, there's merit in this approach: it certainly moves the argument
    about how to encode the signature out of my backyard :)

    Should we just bite the bullet and create a new syscall:

    SYSCALL_DEFINE5(init_module2, void __user *, umod,
    unsigned long, len, const char __user *, uargs,
    unsigned int, siglen, const char __user *, sig)

    But I'm easily swayed if you prefer the current approach.

    Thanks,
    Rusty.
