Subject: [PATCH v2] module: Implement sig_unenforce parameter

When CONFIG_MODULE_SIG_FORCE is enabled, also provide a boot-time-only
parameter, module.sig_unenforce, to disable signature enforcement. This
allows distributions to ship with signature verification enforcement
enabled by default, but for users to elect to disable it without
recompiling, to support building and loading out-of-tree modules.

Signed-off-by: Brett T. Warden <brett.t.warden@...el.com>

Added CONFIG_X86 guards around use of boot_params since this structure
is arch-specific.
