Simplify grub-check-signatures: just skip kernel if a .efi.signed file exists

00b2d12... by Steve Langasek

Handle the case where we have unsigned vmlinuz and signed vmlinuz.efi.signed

If we have both vmlinuz and vmlinuz.efi.signed in /boot, the presence of
vmlinuz shouldn't cause grub-check-signatures to error.

debian/patches/linuxefi_truncate_overlong_reloc_section.patch: The Windows 7 bootloader has inconsistent headers; truncate to the smaller, correct size to fix chainloading Windows 7.

efi/chainloader: truncate overlong relocation section

The UEFI Windows 7 boot loader ("EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi", SHA1
31b410e029bba87d2068c65a80b88882f9f8ea25) has inconsistent headers.

That is, the size reported by the RelocDir entry (0x574) is smaller than
the virtual size of the .reloc section (0xe22).

Quoting the grub2 debug log for the same:

> chainloader.c:595: reloc_dir: 0xd9000 reloc_size: 0x00000574

> chainloader.c:675: Section raw_data size: 00001000
> chainloader.c:678: Discarding section

After hexdumping "bootmgfw.efi" and manually walking its relocation blocks
(yes, really), I determined that the (smaller) RelocDir value is correct.
The remaining area that extends up to the .reloc section size (== 0xe22 -
0x574 == 0x8ae bytes) exists as zero padding in the file.

This zero padding shouldn't be passed to relocate_coff() for parsing. In
order to cope with it, split the handling of .reloc sections into the
following branches:

- original case (equal size): original behavior (--> relocation

- overlong .reloc section (longer than reported by RelocDir): truncate the
  section to the RelocDir size for the purposes of relocate_coff(), and
  attempt relocation,

- .reloc section is too short, or other checks fail: original behavior
  (--> relocation not attempted).
