This is a Linux user-space application to modify the Intel Extensible
Firmware Interface (EFI) Boot Manager configuration. This application can
create and destroy boot entries, change the boot order, change the next
running boot option, and more.
Additional information about (U)EFI can be found at http://www.uefi.org/.
Note: efibootmgr requires that the kernel module efivars be loaded prior
to use. 'modprobe efivars' should do the trick if it does not
automatically load.
