We shouldn't need to load into the secondary keyring.
The helper needs to support an arbitrary key ring.
The kernel shouldn't interfere with loading that test key into
a test ring.

What kind of 'unnecessary code' ?

Maybe wrapping verify_pkcs7_signature as a helper is too high level?

That's no go.
