Let me know when/what you'd like me yo upload too.

Thanks. My only open concerns about fwupdate are what if anything to do about
these two lintian warnings:
W: fwupdate: executable-not-elf-or-script boot/efi/EFI/Debian/fwupdate.efi

That'll be because it's marked executable, I guess? Just chmod -x it,
it's not like you run it from Linux after all?

So, looking at how grub does things, it installs what goes into /boot/efi into /usr/lib/grub and then copies to /boot/efi. Once that's done, the .efi files under /boot/efi show up as executable under Linux, though I'm not really sure what that even means for UEFI.

W: libfwup0: package-name-doesnt-match-sonames libfwup0.4

The first one I think needs to be ignored or overridden. The second one I'm
not sure about how serious it is. If you think it's important, I'll see about
having that library name changed.

Hmmm. Do we need the separate library package, even? Is anybody
else expecting to use it, or is it just internal to the package?

fwupd needs it. (FYI, that's the next package I'm working on, though since it's got a bunch of GNOME dependencies, I have someone who is familiar with GNOME who offered to sponsor it.)

I notice that libefivar uses libefivar.so.0. Maybe we should do that instead. I'll ping Peter about that.
