The message comes from modprobe because platform is not EFI. grub tries
to load efivars exactly to verify whether we are on EFI or not. So
while it is harmless it is indeed not nice.

Hmm ... I'm not sure we really need it at all (in
grub_install_get_default_x86_platform). Directory /sys/firmware/efi is
not created by module efivars and we check whether this directory
exists. I think it can safely be removed.
