I know it works like this way because of the previous patch. But from
the patch log "When KEXEC_SIG is not enabled, kernel should not load
images", it is simple to check it early for !IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_KEXEC_SIG) &&
kernel_is_locked_down(reason, LOCKDOWN_INTEGRITY) instead of depending
on the late code to verify signature. In that way, easier to
understand the logic, no?

Thanks
