apple_set_os.efi: unlock Intel IGD on MacBook Pro

apple_set_os.efi: Tiny EFI program for unlocking the Intel IGD on the Macbook Pro 11,3 for Linux and Windows. It has been made to be easily chainloaded by unmodified EFI bootloader like Grub, rEFInd etc. The Macbook Pro 11,3 model’s EFI is switching off the Intel GPU if you boot anything but Mac OS X. So a little trick by faking the OS identifiction is required to make all hardware accessible. All credits belong to Andreas Heider who originally discovered this hack.[…]

Debian signed Shim

Secure Boot chain-loading bootloader (Microsoft-signed binary)

This package provides a minimalist boot loader which allows verifying signatures of other UEFI binaries against either the Secure Boot DB/DBX or against a built-in signature database. Its purpose is to allow a small, infrequently-changing binary to be signed by the UEFI CA, while allowing an OS distributor to revision their main bootloader independently of the CA. This package contains the version of the bootloader binary signed by the Microsoft UEFI CA.
