I wonder why the devicetree command is disabled while the initrd command is 
not. For an attacker the initrd is much more attractive.

For both the initrd and the dt it would be good to introduce signatures.

A devicetree before fixups is invariant and could be signed together with the 
kernel and checked against shims certificate database.
