Please send patch to grub-devel for review. It contains unaligned memory access and interpretation of string is rather questionable. Unfortunately bug tracker is not really suitable for patch reviews. Thank you.

We added a module to able to read EFI variables from configfile. Currently we use it for Secure Boot. This allows us to do following in grub.cfg:

# check whether Secure Boot is enabled
get_efivar -t uint8 SecureBoot efi_secure_boot

if [ $efi_secure_boot = 1 ]; then
# secure boot is enabled, boot our secure OS
elif
# secure boot is disabled: enable it, boot insecure OS etc
fi

We would like to contribute it back because it seems useful for the community. Feel free to change copyright information if needed.
