The drivers in staging won't get loaded when lockdown is enabled to
provide safety. There's a list to override behavior though.

The r8822be in its current form defaults to enable debugfs, which can be less 
secure as it exposes and extra interface to userspace. But we are not sure if 
the driver still works once the debugfs gets disabled, so please test this 

Once we are sure r8822be still works when debugfs is disabled, we can
include this fix to Cosmic.

  RTL8822BE WiFi Disabled in Kernel 4.18.0-12

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  ===SRU Justification===
  Realtek 8822be doesn't work under kernel lockdown.

  Add r8822be.ko to signature-inclusion, so it can be signed and be loaded
  when lockdown is enabled.
  Since I can't signed the kernel so it's not tested.

  [Regression Potential]
  Low. The driver is maintained by a Realtek guy, so bugs are actually
  getting fixed.

  ===Original Bug Report===
  Received kernel patch 4.18.0-12 today on my machine. On reboot my WiFi 
appears to be unavailable.
  lspci still recognises the installed RTL8822BE card and a reboot back to the 
previous kernel version (4.18.0-11) seems to resolve the problem.

  We tried some debugging in the IRC channel and didn't get very far.
  The r8822be module alias is intact, trying to modprobe it or insert
  results in a "operation not permitted" error. Modprobing mac80211 and
  cfg80211 which r8822be depends on did not seem to help.
