[PATCH 1/2][Cosmic] UBUNTU: SAUCE: (efi-lockdown) module: trust keys from secondary keyring for module signing

For signing dkms modules we use a machine owner key whose public
half is enrolled into shim. This gets imported into the kernel's
secondary keyring, thus keys in this keyring need to be trusted
for module signing.

Unfortunately the revision of the "secure boot lockdown" patches
imported into cosmic had a bug whereby keys in the secondary
keyring are not trusted for module signing. Another bug resulted
in the modules still being loaded under lockdown, so before
fixing that bug we need to fix the bug with trusting the MOK for
module signing so that dkms modules sigend with the MOK will
continue to load.
