OK, so it looks like this is caused by additional protection against NVRAM
overflow added to Linux kernel. See extensive discussion also here:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=947142

Could you check

- you do not have dmesg dumps stored there. See
http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/23554.html and
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=947142#c27. If yes, you can try to
remove them. You will need multiple reboots as far as I understand.

- before you do it, could you please test updated efibootmgr that should better
report OOM conditions:

zypper add obs://home:/arvidjaar:branches:Base:System/openSUSE_Factory
efibootmgr
zypper refresh efibootmgr
zypper update -r efibootmgr efibootmgr

(do not use other packages there, I'm not sure in which state they are)

Test the same efibootmgr commands as before - it should now report error it got
from kernel/EFI.
