It's crossed my mind, but I haven't had much time to spend on IA-64 the
past year, and that isn't likely to change soon...  I think the only tool
that uses /proc/efi/vars is efibootmgr, which would also need to learn of
a move to /sys.  Your binary-blob interface for sysfs is exactly the right
thing to use for it though.

Anyone want to take a stab at switching it, or do you want to wait for me
to have time?
