[pve-devel] [PATCH kernel-meta 2/2] Add efiboot refresh hook to update-initramfs

As explained in [0], we can add a hook script that will be called after
update-initramfs did its job (and thus, a new initrd has been created).

We can use this to automatically sync the ESPs using 'pve-efiboot-tool
refresh', if update-initramfs was called manually (on kernel upgrade we
already have a hook that does this).

Found a hook we can use :)

Ignore the previous patch to docs then, since the ESP refresh now happens
automatically. I'll send a new one later.
