Ok, I just successfully tested this change.
Two questions left:
1. Can you test whether we can drop the /boot partition on Sun
2. Now that we can use GRUB, what about updating the default

used on ppc64el:
3. GRUB installs fine now on Sun partition tables without any further ado?
4. And, just to be safe: Your previous mail contained hashes
