Please don't CC GRUB maintainers, we fixed the bug already and there's nothing
more we can do about this.
IMO, it may have been a good idea to post-pone the inode change untill the
GRUB in oldstable supported that (or maybe it'd be overkill). Anyway, this
decision concerns e2fsprogs and not grub.

still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
