I just worked on it yesterday and have pushed my new WIP branch to salsa
just now: <https://salsa.debian.org/pmhahn/grub/tree/signing3>

My current problem is that I wanted to test the full chain: self-signed
certificates, shim, grub, Linux kernel. It uses Qemu/KVM using OVMF with
I've attached my shell script which works on my Laptop only, as my GIT
repositories are located in many places, but maybe it's useful for other
to get started.

The good news: It works: It loads the signed SHIM and GRUB.

The bad news: GRUB still falls back to loading an unsigned Linux kernel.

@Luca: Any idea?

This is on my TODO list for this week, but it's not the only one.

@Colin: Please have a look if the new branch is in a suitable shape for
your consumption. Please don't merge yet until the issue mentioned above
is resolved. Thanks.
