Already discussed elsewhere, but yeah, when using TLA's, unless they
are universally understood (like "CPU" or "TLB" or whatever), please
spell them out somewhere for people who don't have the background.

I saw that you said elsewhere that MOK is "Machine Owner Key", but
please let's just have that in the sources and commit messages at
least for the original new code cases.

Maybe it becomes obvious over time as there is more history to the
code, but when you literally introduce a new concept, please spell it
