I was thinking oof signing the same kernel twice. Can I sign authenticode
signed kernel again (using RSA signature as we do for modules) and append
the signature to bzImage.

I am wondering if authenticode signature verification will fail due
to this extra signature at the end of bzImage. pjones thought that it
will break authenticode signature verification. CCing him.

Thanks
