Re: Bug#271269: grub: /etc/kernel-img.conf hooks should be added by package's post-install script

reassign 271269 grub

Sorry, I really don't see how this could be the kernel's problem.  It is up to
each bootloader to find all kernel-packages and add them to its menu. As such,
this bug indeed belongs to GRUB, not to the kernel.
