I worked with fsmithred a year or so ago on this issue. I think the consensus
was to make the system variable debian instead of devuan to fix this issue.
I've been removing the signed image lately in order to keep my efi systems
booting. Shouldn't grub be forked in order to fix this? Or perhaps remove
grub-efi-amd64-signed from merged?
