after update to openrc-0.24 from 0.23.2 i got that error which results in non-bootable system. after chrooting and downgrading openrc to 0.23.2, system works again.

Make sure your kernel config contains

CONFIG_EFIVAR_FS=Y

Then again if your machine isn't using EFI...

before that everything was okay, and i was never needed to activate this option. I've been using efistub for about 3 years.
now i've activated that option, will update openrc to 0.24, reboot and pray.

Must be that commit https://github.com/OpenRC/openrc/commit/6a79aef0159d7035778fd852b26ecfac903cd029

It has been change from
- did you boot in efi?
- did you have efivars fs support enable
- if both yes, mount efivars fs

to
- did you boot in efi?
- mount efivars fs

It's not because a user has boot in efi mode that he have any wish or need to alter efivars datas.
So it's perfectly legit that a user even when booting in uefi have no needs for efivars fs.
