Ah, for "libgeom from unstable", please read "libgeom from testing".
I somehow confused myself into thinking 8.2 was not in sid yet, hence
In other words, all I was saying is that grub-probe built with new
ABI is not happy when you try to run it with old libgeom. Which is
not very surprising. The patch avoids the problem by explicitly
depending on libgeom 8.2.
A better fix is to wait for Guillem's upload and then schedule a
binnmu. Sorry for the noise.
