Most of the patches from the list above are now under review or (almost)
ready for merging. I will push all patches which got my RB recently
after holidays.

(Sadly) we have to add UEFI NX patches to the list above due to
introduction of new requirements "for all applications to be signed by
the Microsoft third-party Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI)
Certificate Authority (CA)" [1]. I hope relevant patches will appear on
the grub-devel in January or February.
