There is an apparent problem with an error path through the rtcreset.sig checking.

When RTCAR is enabled and if the system has an invalid /security/rtcreset.sig file in place (e.g. badly signed or expired), boot output appears as follows:

RTCRESET found - signature invalid
Bad signature
Trying int:\boot\runos.zip
OS found - signature valid
Not enough parameters

The kernel then crashes during boot due to not having an initramfs.

Reproduced on XO-1.5 running Q3B23.
