That's actually a good point. This particular commit is missing for

sparc: https://salsa.debian.org/installer-team/debian-installer/blob/master/build/config/sparc/netboot.cfg
sparc64: https://salsa.debian.org/installer-team/debian-installer/blob/master/build/config/sparc64/netboot.cfg

And: https://salsa.debian.org/installer-team/debian-installer/commit/980a6d3bbbfe4811c0e5d2dae30cec04e3b46664

I have commit access for debian-installer, I'll add that change for sparc64 as well.

As for TILO vs. GRUB: We're planning on deprecating SILO/TILO completely
for sparc64. I hope to get this done within the next weeks. GRUB itself
already works fine on sparc64, it's just grub-installer and partman-auto
that need to be patched. Frank Scheiner has sent patches for those, I just
didn't have the time to review and merge them.

I will try to resolve all these issues next week.
