Bug#617987: release-notes: Note that grub2 does not covert existing grub1 config file

Package: release-notes
Severity: minor


It's may be worth noting that grub2 does not seamlessly
convert grub's menu.lst file.  A sentence like the following
should be enough added the end of of the first paragraph
of 4.8.1 Upgrade to GRUB2:

Note that GRUB2 builds its menu by autodetection and so
customized GRUB1 boot menus may require further configuration
of GRUB2.

(Or you may think the release notes already cluttered
enough and decide to ignore this report.)
