WARN: no efidisk configured!

Hello. When booting or rolling back to a snapshot of my UEFI based VM without an EFI disk configured I get the warning:

WARN: no efidisk configured! Using temporary efivars disk. TASK WARNINGS: 1

This isn't normally a problem as the VM comes up fine and everything is working. However I've started to try and use the CapeV2 sandbox malware analysis tool with my proxmox install and it's giving it a problem. CapeV2 requires a live snapshot (VM powered on). The warning comes up as a task failure to CapeV2 when it tries to roll the VM back to it's snapshot through the REST API, which prevents it from doing any kind of analysis.

I need to use a UEFI image for the analyses and I am only able to make a live snapshot of a UEFI VM if I don't have an EFI disk configured.

Is there any way I can suppress the warning? I've looked into changing the python script CapeV2 uses, but my python-fu is rather weak and not yet up to the task of getting it to ignore this particular warning. I'm hoping suppressing the warning might be an easier way.
