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 execution.
