Bug#810697: fwupdate: unowned files after purge (policy 6.8, 10.8): /var/cache/fwupdate/done

Thanks, Sure thing.  I've staged something in git to clean these up.

The directory in /boot/efi isn't owned because it's possible that the
/boot/efi partition isn't mounted for some reason.  The contents of
/boot/efi/EFI/fw are written only by fwupdate as far as I'm aware.  I'll
clean up that directory during purge too.  If there ends up being a
reason this is a bad idea, please report it.
