MVFS Taints Kernel on RHEL 7

We receive a message in the Linux messages file: "kernel: mvfs: module verification failed: signature and/or required key missing - tainting kernel" for our Linux 7 systems.

This is expected since Red Hat Enterprise Linux messages concerning tainted kernels have changed in RHEL 7. In RHEL 7 any loaded driver module that is built outside of a full Linux kernel build will taint the kernel. In RHEL 7 any kernel module that cannot be authenticated with a public key from the kernel's system key ring will taint the kernel. This could be either because the module was not signed or the required public key could not be found.
