As the keys CFG80211_REQUIRE_SIGNED_REGDB are built into the kernel
image, they would be included in the kernel image signature.

As I previously asked https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/11/15/679, how are
the keys located in the CFG80211_EXTRA_REGDB_KEYDIR keyring trusted?
 The keyring does not validate the certificate signatures, before
loading the keys on the firmware keyring.  It explicitly bypasses the
certificate signature validation.
