Exactly like EVERY OTHER KERNEL CONFIG OPTION.
Just like all the ones that I've mentioned several times.
Or, like a lot of other kernel options, maybe have a way to just
disable it on the kernel command line, and let the user know about it.
That would still be better than disabling secure boot entirely in your
world view, so it's (a) more convenient and (b) better.
Again, in no case does it make sense to tie it into "how did we boot".
Because that's just inconvenient for everybody.
