I don't know if the Secure Boot PKI has a publicly documented 
contingency plan for a compromised CA, but my understanding is that 
there are multiple slots for signatures:


So, I would guess that clients would receive a new trust DB that did not 
contain the old root CA, and new bootloaders signed by both the old root 
CA and the new CA.  The new bootloaders would work on both new and old 
systems, having signatures from both. Old bootloaders would not work on 
new clients.
