Ok, I just successfully tested this change.

Two questions left:

1. Can you test whether we can drop the /boot partition on Sun
   partition tables?

2. Now that we can use GRUB, what about updating the default
   partitioning scheme? Maybe one that is inspired by the layout
   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
   before the partition layout lines (#). You did not actually
   have those in your atomic file, correct?
