Note that grub is not breaking, nor does grub transition break
anything -- if users follow the advice in NEWS.Debian from grub, then
they intriducean user error. So it is a documentation bug, which

Yeah, it does not help there was a bug in kernel-package that
I just fixed that mean that any images built so far would result in a
