If executing `efibootmgr` fails, for example, because the system is
booted in legacy mode, but with a mounted EFI System Partition, the
error message mentions *efibootmgr*. To make it easier for users to work
around that problem by skipping running `efibootmgr`, add the word to
the description of the switch *no-nvram*, which skips the efibootmgr
