EFISTUB works perfectly on devuan with official debian wiki instructio

https://wiki.debian.org/EFIStub
This guide also applies to devuan. I used manual method. It works.
But why do this? Let's say you have 2 linux distros installed. One kernel updates, the other one doesn't update unless you log in to that and update it's grub too. This prevents this. The kernel changes are applied immediately. It boots under 7 seconds for me in SATA SSD btw.

Only one thing, if you use say like xanmod kernel, don't use the /vmlinuz and /initrd file. They are for stock kernel. That will just boot into the stock kernel. Instead do this for your kernel versions. Change the version numbers appropriately:
sudo mv /boot/initrd.img-6.5.8-x64v3-xanmod1 /boot/efi/EFI/Devuan/initrd.img
sudo mv /boot/vmlinuz-6.5.8-x64v3-xanmod1 /boot/efi/EFI/Devuan/vmlinuz
