Scripts for packaging virtio-win drivers into VFDs, ISO, and an RPM. The goal
here is to generate a virtio-win RPM that matches the same file layout as
the RHEL virtio-win RPM, and publish the contents on

virtio-win driver signatures
All the Windows binaries are from builds done on Red Hat’s internal build system, which are generated using publicly available code. Windows 8+ drivers are cryptographically signed with Red Hat’s test signature Windows 10+ drivers are signed with Microsoft attestation signature. However they are not signed with Microsoft’s WHQL signature. WHQL signed builds are only available with a paid RHEL subscription.
The drivers are cryptographically signed with Red Hat’s vendor signature. However they are not signed with Microsoft’s WHQL signature.
Warning: Due to the signing requirements of the Windows Driver Signing Policy, drivers which are not signed by Microsoft will not be loaded by some versions of Windows when Secure Boot is enabled in the virtual machine. See bug #1844726. The test signed drivers require enabling to load the test signed drivers. Consider configuring the test computer to support test-signing and installing
