What are the current options for booting PVHv2 guests in Xen 4.10.0?

As far as I can see there is only direct kernel booting, i.e.
supplying "kernel = /path/to/vmlinux".

In PV land there is pvgrub which is very convenient for being able
to use kernel and initramfs, but I am not seeing support for that in
upstream grub2. I see that Juergen Gross post a patch series that
claims to add this feature:


…but this doesn't seem to have been applied yet. Is it an ongoing
idea or has that method been abandoned?
