Subject[PATCH] modsign: print module name along with error message
It is useful to know which module failed signature verification, so
print the module name along with the error message.

Signed-off-by: Jessica Yu <>
This patch was sent last year, but apparently I forgot to pursue getting it
merged (it had a dependency on the lockdown patchset). Now that's merged,
I'm resending it.
