Call insert-sys-cert script with null file to ensure that random bytes are
inserted to the space reserved with CONFIG_SYSTEM_EXTRA_CERTIFICATE, before
compressing the vmlinux. This results in an uncompressed reserved area
inside the bzImage as well, so that it can be replaced with an actual
certificate later (after the bzImage is distributed).

Cross compilation is not supported yet.
