Bug description:
  When booting under secureboot and using a signed kernel, it's expected
  that all modules shipped alongside the kernel should validate and load
  successfully without tainting the kernel.

  Unfortunately it doesn't seem to always be the case. Looking through
  my kernel logs, I see:

  Nov 15 10:35:24 castiana kernel: [    1.635132] video: module
  verification failed: signature and/or required key missing - tainting


  Nov 12 12:58:48 castiana kernel: [213981.753326] Request for unknown
  module key 'Magrathea: Glacier signing key:
