                <para><filename>systemd-efi-boot-generator</filename>
                is a generator that automatically creates mount and
                automount units for the EFI System Partition (ESP),
                mounting it to <filename>/boot</filename>. Note that
                this generator will execute no operation on non-EFI
                systems, on systems where the boot loader does not
                communicate the used ESP to the OS, on systems where
                <filename>/boot</filename> is an explicitly configured
                mount (for example, listed in <citerefentry><refentrytitle>fstab</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>) or where the <filename>/boot</filename> mount
                point is non-empty. Since this generator creates an
                automount unit, the mount will only be activated
                on-demand, when accessed.</para>
