dbxupdate got published on uefi.org website. I would be happy to sponsor
the fwupd debdiff for groovy now. To unblock roll-outs of the new shim.

The split to have standalone fwupd-efi should happen as it is a good
idea - it will enable shipping newer fwupd user-space tooling in the
snap / OEM archives / PPAs at an accelerated pace without impacting
signed UEFI binary. But at least we don't need to rush the split.

Bug description:
  this is a follow-up bug for


  Future releases of shim will require that EFI binaries that are chainloaded include an SBAT region. fwupd in bionic does not currently contain this region.

  [Test Case]
  Verify that a shim that checks for sbat region can boot the fwupd with sbat region.

  [Regression Potential]
  This is moving to a new stable release in each of the series which is in bug fix only mode. The sbat region is the only "feature" that has been backported to this series in over a year.
