Subject: [PATCH v2] efi/efivars: Create efivars mount point via efivars abstraction

This patch creates efivars mount point when active efivars abstraction
be set. It is useful for userland to determine the availability of efivars
filesystem.

v2:
Using efivars_kobject() helper instead of checking GetVariable or
GetNextVariable EFI runtime services. Because the efivarfs code could be
instantiated using a different efivars abstraction.
