  * debian/patches/shim_secureboot_support.patch:
    - Move to signing just after module build to ensure it correctly applies
      at kernel update times. (LP: #1772950)
    - Generate a new MOK if there isn't one yet, and use that so sign
      newly-built kernel modules. (LP: #1748983)

  * debian/templates: remove secureboot templates; no templates left.
  * debian/postinst: handle cleanup of the previous templates.
