Without this patch, GRUB may proceed to wipe all firmware boot entries
and report a successful installation, even if efibootmgr hit an error.

Subject: Make grub-install check for errors from efibootmgr
Code is currently ignoring errors from efibootmgr, giving users
clearly bogus output like:
Setting up grub-efi-amd64 (2.02~beta3-4) ...
Installing for x86_64-efi platform.
Could not delete variable: No space left on device
Could not prepare Boot variable: No space left on device
Installation finished. No error reported.
and then potentially unbootable systems. If efibootmgr fails, grub-install
should know that and report it!
We've been using similar patch in Debian now for some time, with no ill effects.
