Yes, however the key generation itself is horribly verbose and doesn't mix
very well with the output of a parallel build. Now that the modules are
signed at install time, presumably the key should be generated then as
well, and the output cleaned up to look like normal Kbuild messages (with
support for V=1 for the curious).
