Subjectinit_module.2 man page ERRORS text for signed modules
Hi David, Rusty,

Linux 3.7 added signed modules. As a consequence, init_module()
acquired some new possible error returns. I've put together the text
below to describe the new errors. Does the text look okay?

Thanks,

Michael

.TP
.BR EBADMSG " (since Linux 3.7)"
Module signature is misformatted.
.TP
.BR ENOKEY " (since Linux 3.7)"
.\" commit 48ba2462ace6072741fd8d0058207d630ce93bf1
.\" commit 1d0059f3a468825b5fc5405c636a2f6e02707ffa
.\" commit 106a4ee258d14818467829bf0e12aeae14c16cd7
Module signature is invalid or module is unsigned.
This error is returned only if the kernel was configured with
.BR CONFIG_MODULE_SIG_FORCE ;
if the kernel was not configured with this option,
then an invalid or usigned module simply taints the kernel.
