If I understand correctly, it would not be legal to ship a binary of GRUB2 with a machine that does not allow the user to install his/her own signing keys, because the user then cannot replace it with a new version (unless an appropriate private key is provided to the user).
But it seems to me that if a laptop shipped with GRUB2 comes with a document telling the user how to install a private key on that laptop, and how to sign new binaries with that key, then GPL3 is fully complied with.
