Description of problem:
Receiving following messages:

vboxdrv: module verification failed: signature and/or required key missing - tainting kernel
Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint

I then disabled validation using mokutil --disable-validation, however message still occurs

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Reboot
2.  dmesg | grep taint

Actual results:
kernel tainted 

Expected results:
kernel not tainted

The Fedora kernel taints whenever the virtual box modules are loaded, regardless of either signature state or Secure Boot.  We don't support virtual box.
