available on more recent Debian kernel systems.

Quoting from https://wiki.debian.org/UEFI:

| The older interface was efivars, showing files under

| The new interface is efivarfs, which will expose things in a slightly
| different format under /sys/firmware/efi/efivars. This is the new
| preferred way of using UEFI configuration variables, and Debian switched
