I have tried on Qemu with OVMF, I can load and unload second kernel by
kexec tool (on openSUSE is in kexec-tools RPM):

# kexec -u -s

I add -s for using kexec-load-file, and I signed kernel by pesign.

Either enabling secure boot in EFI firmware or using _lockdown_ kernel
parameter, the second kernel can be locked down on my OVMF VM.

I used following commands:

# kexec -s -l /boot/vmlinuz-4.14.0-rc2-default+ --append="$(cat /proc/cmdline)" --initrd=/boot/initrd-4.14.0-rc2-default+
# umount -a; mount -o remount,ro /
# kexec -e

The kernel source is from David's linux-fs git with lockdown-20171026 tag.
The kernel is also signed by pesign.
