Oooops, I haven't noticed it.

Although I don't understand what you mean above very well,
some questions:
1) Is it good enough just to put a package name in .travis.yml's addons
   if all the required binaries (commands) are installed in standard

2) I need efitools package, but a version provided in xenial(16.04) is
   quite old and some command has a fatal bug. So my current py test
   will fail.
   We need v1.5.2 or later of efitools, which is only available
   in cosmic(18.10) and later.
   How can we address this issue? Do we need some script to build efitools
   on our own on GitLab/Travis server?

3) (Not specific to secure boot test)
   Does "su" or "sudo" command work on Travis CI server?
