As I said, those are known issues and I know how these messages are triggered. They are
part of the checks in the partman-* packages. I simply didn't have the time to work on
that yet as changing these things involves lots of testing and trial and error to make
sure the checks are correct.

I'm not even there yet to work on LVM. I don't understand the hurry to make everything
perfect at once. This issue might not even specific to PowerMacs, so it would make more
sense first to test this on x86 systems and report a bug against src:grub2 or partman-lvm
if the issue shows there as well.
