cannot get libvirt/qemu to use secure boot

Hi everybody,

        I am having serious trouble enabling secure boot via virt-install... 
and I do not see clearly even where to look for help :-/. Maybe somebody can 
point me on the right direction? I am running:
        arch linux
        edk2-ovmf 202011-1
        libvirt 6.5
        virt-install 3.2
        qemu 5.2

I am creating the domain with virt-install, and the parameters
        --features smm.state=on

when running the VM, I can see on the command line that those ovmf code and 
vars are used.

If I boot into the UEFI I can see there is the menu for the OVMF and Secure 
Boot available, but when I get into the Secure Boot entry, I only see it is 
"disabled" and I cannot tick the "Attempt secure boot" box.

As far as I understand, by using OVMF_CODE.secboot.f I should already get the 
default keys working, so I should be good to go to test this setup, but... to 
no success.

Does anybody have any idea on what might be wrong/where can I get help (should 
this not be the place?)

Thank you!
