I think grub2 considers submenu entries to be entries, and therefore
when determining which entry to use we should include those in the

I think you didn't see this in your testing because without XSM the
entry we want is the first item in the first submenu, so there is an off
by one in the entry we ask for, which turns out to correspond to the
first submenu itself, and then the grub timeout means that it then
selects the first entry in that submenu, so it works.

I'm currently testing the patch below, if it works then I intend to fold
it into "Parsing grub which has 'submenu' primitive" and will re-push
the result.
