(In reply to Michael Chang from comment #12)
That code however gets invoked during installation without /sys mounted, so
the heuristics fail and we always create a removable fallback binary.

It's likely efivarfs.ko not there ..

I'm definitely happy to receive ideas on how to find out :)


The net result of this is that you get a removable media bootaa64.efi (or
bootx64.efi) which has a default btrfs path embedded that doesn't work
because our btrfs paths look different.

I think yast2 bootloader should also put that pbl logic to invoke
grub2-install to get everything consistent. That pbl script may invoke too
early before /etc/default/grub get correctly written by yast.

Yes, but that won't fix everything just yet. If we implement the same logic in
yast2-bootloader, then we fix up the removable case. But for "normal" EFI
systems that have working NVRAM, we would still be as broken as before.
