Nope, knox will not be restored by a firmware upgrade. Do not get your hopes up. It isn't being restored in the Oreo betas aswell.
I think the only way that knox could be restored is due to a mistake by Samsung :D

No. Knox trigger it's physical and not a software solution. It's an fuse on your phone mainboard. It's literally a physical damage. No software update will fix it :)

repairing the fuse that is blown out.

Good luck with that. That e-fuse is located inside SoC.
And about replacing the mainboard... One should pay for a new mainboard, probably spending some money to pay someone to replace it in order to avoid being needed to pay to repair another defect? Does it sounds logical to you?
A motherboard for S8 costs £320-360. Plus another 50ish quid for labour. Would take you to £370-410. You can buy another S8 with those money :)

No. I won't say 100% but 98. Some one may crack it today tomorrow or in 10p years but do not get your hopes up
