This is efibootmgr, a Linux user-space application to modify the Intel
Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) Boot Manager.  This application
can create and destroy boot entries, change the boot order, change
the next running boot option, and more.
Details on the EFI Boot Manager are available from the EFI
Specification, v1.02 or above, available from http://developer.intel.com.
Note: efibootmgr requires that the kernel module efivars be loaded
prior to use.  'modprobe efivars' should do the trick.
