Done, patches are now in pkg-grub/grub.git#master.

The current package in sid (-17) is unblocked and I think ought to
transition tomorrow (or perhaps Tuesday depending on TZ). I propose to
upload -18 with this change shortly after that happens. Will you take
care of the unblock request or at least provide me some text with the
rationale etc.

There are a boatload of updates to debian/po/*. How is that handled? I
committed the automated thing but am I supposed to prod some process
somewhere else too?

Anyway, I suppose there will need to be a second upload at some point
with the results of those translations. Perhaps that will be a good time
to fix #771249 too.

-17 included some patches from Colin to make the 32-bit linuxefi command
