  * New upstream version.
    - Now uses efivar which supports immutable attributes (LP: #1560764)
  * B-D on libefivar-dev, dh-autoreconf
  * debian/rules: use autoreconf

  "fails to request state" when trying to perform actions in mokutil

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix

  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Recently it's been observed that mokutil is unable to make changes to
  the various Mok* variables.  It complains that  "fails to request
  state" when trying most actions or similar errors.

  The root of these problems is because the variables have been set as immutable after this kernel commit:

  In many instances mokutil 0.2 will delete the variable and recreate
  it, so changing it with chattr isn't a workable solution as the kernel
  will just recreate it with the immutable attribute and it will fail
  over again.
