address@hidden: Bug#858832: calls efibootmgr with invalid options]

I guess that the attached bug happens because grub_install_register_efi
is called on non-biosdisk-ish systems but uses
grub_util_biosdisk_get_osdev to get an OS device name for
efidir_grub_dev->disk, which isn't going to work so well.  I'm a bit
rusty here - would anyone care to venture a guess at suitable
replacement code that would work on devices other than biosdisk?
