Fixes CVE-2012-4565 and CVE-2012-4508. Updates kernel module signing to match the upstream kernel, and updates the UEFI secure boot patch set.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
