In a nutshell, the Linux Foundation cannot sign the legal agreement that
is required for signing Windows drivers, as the agreement required to do
attestation signing is not open source community friendly. We are
currently investigating whether Microsoft is willing to do a special
agreement with the Linux Foundation, but this will take some time. And it
may not lead to anything.
