Subject: [PATCH] Relax the check for import_mok_state()
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

An openSUSE user reported(*) that shim 15.4 failed to boot the system
with the following message:

  "Could not create MokListXRT: Out of Resources"

In the beginning, I thought it's caused by the growing size of
vendor-dbx. However, we found the following messages after set

  max_var_sz:8000 remaining_sz:85EC max_storage_sz:9000
  SetVariable(“MokListXRT”, ... varsz=0x1404) = Out of Resources

Even though the firmware claimed the remaining storage size is 0x85EC,
it still rejected MokListXRT with size 0x1404. It seems that the return
values from QueryVariableInfo() are not reliable. Since this firmware
didn't really support Secure Boot, the variable mirroring is not so
critical, so we can just accept the failure of import_mok_state() and
continue boot.
