Can you get an "strace -s 1024 -o efibootmgr.strace efibootmgr ..." of the efibootmgr run that creates this entry?  My suspicion is something in sysfs changed and we're not parsing some symlink correctly any more on that hardware.

strace -s 1024 -o efibootmgr.strace efibootmgr -c -w -L Fedora-test -d /dev/sda -p 1 -l /EFI/fedora/shimaa64.efi

Comment 3 Paul Whalen 2018-02-06 19:51:44 UTC
This seems to break with efivar-33-2.fc28, moving to efivar.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.

Comment 5 Paul Whalen 2018-02-27 21:24:14 UTC
Verified fixed in efivar-34-1.fc28. Many thanks!

I guess this BZ should have status MODIFIED now.
