All you need is to mount the ESP as /boot (and make sure it continues to
be mounted that way via fstab) and pacman -S gummiboot && gummiboot
install. You don't need to worry about mounting anything else or deal
with EFI entries. Installing gummiboot will take care of setting it up
as the fallback loader along with making an entry if it can (but it's
not required).
