Please drop this (and the function above) - instead, just return NULL
if the variable is not found (without reporting an error).

These are separate changes - I don't have an opinion whether they are
appropriate or not, but they should be in a separate patch.

I think we should consider carefully what it means if some of these
variables don't exist:
- if secure boot is enabled, db and dbx must exist, so if they don't,
something is wrong
- secure boot might be enabled but we may be booting without shim.
- secure boot might be disabled.

Tweaking the severity of error messages without having a clear idea of
the policy we are aiming to implement is likely to cause trouble down
the road, so perhaps someone could explain what this code does, and
how it should behave in the above circumstances.
