    This is not actually what the patchset implements. All it's done here
    is using PE files as envelopes for keys. The usage this enables is to
    allow for whoever makes a module (binary only or merely out of tree for
    whatever reason) to sign it and vouch for it themselves. That could
    include, for example, a systemtap module.
