Thanks for those links!

I think it would indeed be good if we could make it work via that
interface and I guess that should generally be possible. As far as I can
see, the biggest problem might be that the current firmware doesn't seem
to use UUIDs, so I guess we might need to emulate them somehow.

It would be great if someone with some actual knowledge of the firmware
used on those devices could have a look at this and provide some
insights.

My plan for now is to hold off on the UEFI variable driver until we have
a (proper) TEE driver, which unfortunately might be a bit out of my
depth. I'm happy to help out in any way I can though.

Regards,
Max
