| I don't disable CONFIG_MODULE_SIG configuration in kernel. Since from this
| post (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/24975377/kvm-module-verification-failed-signature-and-or-required-key-missing-taintin),
| the answer said only disable this option in module's Makefile is enough.
following config options are available (under 'enable loadable module support')
CONFIG_MODULE_SIG : checks modules for valid signature on load.
CONFIG_MODULE_SIG_FORCE : rejects unsigned modules or modules for which
key is not available.
thus, if, this is set to 'n' then loading a module with bad signature,
would taint the kernel. however, if, this is set to 'y' then loading a
module with bad signature will be rejected.
so, my guess is that in your case, this is most likely set to 'y'.
