Actually that would be a different requirement altogether. I am not
trying to verify all the processes started by root. I am just trying
to sign and verify signature of select user process and if signature
are verified, kernel grants those processes extra capability and allow
calling sys_kexec() when secureboot is enabled.

So for my use case, I don't care if there are so many other unsigned
processes running in the system.
