By "custom kernel" you mean "kernel which has not been signed with a
private key which a user will not have access to". Said this way, it
sounds much less benign.

It's certainly morally offensive, but not hugely practically problematic -- nobody installs a custom kernel the first time they install Linux.

Furthermore, it makes creating a custom distribution with any changes to the kernel (including modules, and also to grub's configuration, including its screen?) a whole lot more difficult. Which means you'll have less custom Linux distributions.

And I think it's wrong to assume that this module will get signatures for all Linux distribution schemes that are out there.
