This is very strange, as (last time I looked) 'efivars.ko' could only
successfully be loaded, if the kernel had been booted by an EFI loader
(i.e. with 'boot_params.efi_info.efi_loader_signature == "EL64"').

May be you could check, that '/sys/firmware/efi/systab' is accessible
and "reasonable" after loading 'efivars'?

E.g. like
cat /sys/firmware/efi/systab
MPS=0x0
ACPI20=0x9fbfe014
ACPI=0x9fbfe000
SMBIOS=0x9f93b000
HCDP=0x0
BOOTINFO=0x0
UGA=0x0

Coolo, what does your "machine" expose there?
