So, practical steps:

1. Add notes to affected ports on darwin >= 14. This could just be one
sentence and a link to a wiki page that explains the situation in detail.

2. Ask for a cert we can use on the buildslaves.

3. (longer term) Everyone file radars asking for a way for a Mac's admin
to self-sign or whitelist kexts. The aforementioned wiki page could even
encourage this.
