Description

Is there a tool please like "efibootmgr"

https://github.com/rhboot/efibootmgr

for Illumos ? If not could such a tool please be provided ?

That is, a user-space application to modify the Intel Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) Boot Manager. This application can create and destroy boot entries, change the boot order, change the next running boot option for UEFI systems.

according to John Groenveld:

FreeBSD includes efibootmgr(8) which came in handy for configuring
multiboot via EFI:

Yes, we do need it. Most likely I will need to look into it, but I can not yet promise the time slot;)
