ClosedPublic

Details

Summary

Close the unused pipe file descriptors so the parent will notice if
the child exits prematurely. Previously, the parent would block
forever on a read from the pipe.

$ uefisign -c foo.cert -k foo.key -o loader.efi loader.efi.unsigned
uefisign: section points inside the headers
