Can you hold of moving it to [core] for a bit, I need to modify the
grub and grub2 config files to handle the new naming scheme.

There is a patch for grub2 (FS#25337) that I still need to verify, for
grub in [core] we should probably check for both the old and new
naming scheme as the lts kernel still uses the former.

@Allan: as you said last week you were taking care of some grub fixes,
can you do that on short term and add this, or should I go ahead and
have a go tonight?
