[ale] New Apple Hardware with T2 chips



won't boot Linux, currently.

"At least until further notice, these new Apple systems sporting the T2
chip will not be able to boot Linux operating systems. Apple's T2
security chip being embedded into their newest products provides a
secure enclave, APFS storage encryption, UEFI Secure Boot validation,
Touch ID handling, a hardware microphone disconnect on lid close, and
other security tasks. The T2 restricts the boot process quite a bit and
verifies each step of the process using crypto keys signed by Apple. "

So if you are planning to get some of that new Apple hardware to run
Linux on, do your research first.
