Description Przemysław Palacz 2015-06-16 21:24:24 UTC
Description of problem:
After latest efibootmgr update to 0.12-1.fc22 passing any additional arguments via either -u or -@ no longer works for me - can't create any new boot entries.
I can however remove the old ones and create a new one without any additional args.

For example:
efibootmgr -c -d /dev/sda -p 1 -L 'Fedora debug' -l '\efi\fedora\vmlinuz.efi' -u 'initrd=\efi\fedora\initramfs.img ro root=UUID=21df0671-2956-439b-ac47-b9dd888f7c8e ivrs_ioapic[7]=00:14.0 ivrs_ioapic[8]=00:00.1 resume=UUID=21df0671-2956-439b-ac47-b9dd837f7c8e resume_offset=3309568 zswap.enabled=1 quiet LANG=en_US.UTF-8 debug log_buf_len=8M no_console_suspend=1'

shows those errors:
efibootmgr: Could not set variable: Invalid argument
efibootmgr: Could not prepare boot variable: Invalid argument

Hardware info:
Motherboard: Asus sabertooth 990fx
Latest BIOS version: 1604

Last working version: 0.11.0-1.fc22

How reproducible: Always
