arch-chroot should use --rbind mount host's /sys, /proc and /dev inside the chrot so the the sub-mounts are also exposed in the respective chroot dirs. This helps in exposing things like host's efivarfs /sys/firmware/efi/efivars inside the chroot's /sys (so that efibootmgr/gummiboot-setup inside the chroot can create EFI boot entries). See for more info. Thanks in advance.
