Isn't this something trivial? When you guys decided to merge efistub
booting, and when it is clear that the script requires mkfs.vfat,
shouldn't the package that provides mkfs.vfat be included, along with
that patch. You have added efibootmgr that is required only during
runtime, but left out (initially) dosfstools that is required for iso
generation scripts in the first place. Why do it in two separate
steps?

Regards.
