I'm in the process of discovering that the crda-less system
requires the keys in the kernel (a good choice) which can best
be accomplished by your suggestion here.

I have a few things for a rework
1. put some more comments
2. avoid a python3 patch and use python-m2crypto.
3. prepare for an explicit priv key for both wireless-regdb and kernel

Thanks for the review.
Kurt
