      What were you trying to do that didn't work?

      Openstack Nova fails to create VMs with secureboot disabled in a RHEL 8.8 hypervisor. This works fine in a RHEL 9 hypervisor.

      The problem is that RHEL 8.8 doesn't provide a firmware descriptor for the pc-q35-* machine type with secureboot disabled. RHEL 9 provides this configuration in the file /usr/share/qemu/firmware/50-edk2-ovmf-x64-nosb.json

      This bug is to ask for that firmware description to be included in RHEL 8.

      Please provide the package NVR for which bug is seen:

      edk2-ovmf-20220126gitbb1bba3d77-4.el8.noarch

      How reproducible:
