It would appear that it works on neither.  Neither of them seem to have any
CONFIG_xxx symbols set.

How about the attached patch?

    certs: Clean up signing_key.pem and x509.genkey on make mrproper
    Autogenerated signing_key.pem and x509.genkey files aren't removed from the
    build certs/ directory when "make mrproper" is run.  This is somewhat
    deliberate since the "file" is specified by the CONFIG_MODULE_SIG_KEY
    string option and may not be in the build tree - and may not even be a
    filename, but rather a PKCS#7 URI (also the config variables doesn't seem
    to be set when cleaning).
    Fix this by unconditionally listing signing_key.pem and x509.genkey for
    removal from the build certs/ directory - which will just do nothing if
    they're not there, and shouldn't remove signing keys that are configured to
    be elsewhere.
    Note that this will permanently erase the autogenerated private key, so
    anyone that is relying on it still being around after doing make mrproper
    will no longer find it.
