I thought a bit about this. Just generating a test key does not work,
as it must be signed by the kernel signing key (otherwise, loading
in the secondary keyring will be rejected). Having the test key around
is as dangerous as having the kernel signing key around copied
somewhere.

Allowing users to specify a test keyring in the helper is possible.
But it would introduce unnecessary code, plus the keyring identifier
will be understood by eBPF only and not by verify_pkcs7_signature(),
as it happens for other keyring identifiers.

We may have environment variables directly in the eBPF test, to
specify the location of the signing key, but there is a risk of
duplication, as other tests wanting the same information might
not be aware of them.

I would not introduce any code that handles the kernel signing
key (in the Makefile, or in a separate script). This information is
so sensible, that it must be responsibility of an external party
to do the work of making that key available and tell where it is.
