It is not even an automated solution, it's *any* solution. So to be
clear your patch simply disables module verification, it has no

The patch as-is describes a lofty world and does nothing other than
disables module verification. If a patch disables module verification
it should just do that and describe that. Nothing else. The subject
of the patch tends to suggest some flexibility it provided but does
nothing of being flexible, it outright disables module signature
verification. The commit log and the patch subject description are
describing something completely different than what the code actually
does, and it gives me to the concern, to the point that if you didn't
have a few commit logs in the kernel I would have thought your intent
was test kernel developers with some AI type of code that does something
stupid and very carefully crafted commit log.
