I assume you can do that, but I don't know if DOS will even run a signed

Thus it may be that openSUSE 12.2 and older will never run with UEFI Secure
Boot systems. (We
are beyond my knowledge at this point.)

I think, IIRC, that it is not the kernel that is signed, but the loader, ie
grub, or even some
other loader that loads grub. Or both.
