Subject[PATCH RFC] kernel build: enable use of password-protected signing keys
Currently, the module signing script assumes that the private key is 
not password-protected. This patch makes it slightly more secure by
allowing it to be passed in on the command line as "make
modules_install MOD_PASSWORD=abc". It's vulnerable to snooping during
the build of course, but so is an unprotected signing key.

I'm not sure how to securely give the password to the perl signing
script. OpenSSL will prompt you for it in stdin if one isn't provided,
but that's obviously not reasonable if you're building many modules.
