Right, it's been fully converted to sysfs. Just for reference, the
resultant sysfs tree looks something like:

/sys |
|- BootNext-xxxx-xxx-x-x-x-x *
|- BootCurrent-xxxxxx-x-x-x-x *
|- ConOut-xxxx-x-x-x-x-x-x-*
|- del_var
|- new_var

where xxxx-x-x-x-x-x is the GUID.

Yes, I plan to consolidate as much of the common code as possible soon.
