You have been subscribed to a public bug:

After installing the ia64 release of dapper on an rx2620, I noticed that
the kernel module 'efivars' isn't loaded by default.  This module is
needed by the efibootmgr program to allow you to change various boot
options (for example the boot order and next boot).  It should also be
noted that both SuSE and RedHat load it by default in their enterprise
