Those patches have been tested and already integrated in some
distributions. It would be nice to get them in GRUB upstream.

As I can see at least some of them listed here:

So, this is good sign. Currently, we are agreeing what should be
taken into 2.02 train. We are considering just most important things
and fixes. Hence, I am not able to promise that we include in 2.02
all ARM patches mentioned by you if they are not on the above list
right now. However, if it does not happen I will put them on the
list for release after 2.02 (assuming that they are OK).

So it looks like that this series is in the list. However, the patch [1] is missing. It is a requirement for this series, without it Xen will crash when booting with GRUB.

Would it be possible for you to take a look?

Sure thing. However, I am working on some stuff for Xen 4.8 and as
you may know deadline is quite close. So, I will take care of
GRUB2 things in the second half of September. Stay tuned...

It is fine by me.

Thank you,
