That is really good news.

I've not been able to test the patch at runtime as I've some issues with
certificates generation for signing the image[1] but the patch looks
good, so: Acked-by: Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli <GNUtoo at cyberdimension.org>

I'll push it soon.

[1]I really don't want to work around that in the build system because
   thanks to that, I can now test the patches that are supposed to
   improve the situation with certificates generation.
