debian/patches/99-linux-pref-substr.patch: Add option to prefer Linux kernels containing substring

190. By Colin Watson on 2014-04-10

* Backport from upstream:
  - Tolerate devices with no filesystem UUID returned by os-prober
    (LP: #1287436).

189. By Colin Watson on 2014-03-31

[ Colin Watson ]
* Backport from upstream:
  - ieee1275: check for IBM pseries emulated machine.
  - Fix partmap, cryptodisk, and abstraction handling in grub-mkconfig
    (closes: #735935).
  - btrfs: fix get_root key comparison failures due to endianness.
* Build-depend on automake (>= 1.10.1) to ensure that it meets configure's
  requirements (LP: #1299041).
* When installing an image for use with UEFI Secure Boot, generate a
  load.cfg even if there are no device abstractions in use (LP: #1298399).

[ Jon Severinsson ]
* Add Tanglu support, as in Debian except:
  - Enable splash screen by default (as Ubuntu)
  - Enable quiet and quick boot (as Ubuntu)
  - Enable the grub-common init script (as Ubuntu)
  - Enable dynamic gfxpayload (as Ubuntu)
  - Enable vt handover (as Ubuntu)
  - Use monochromatic theme by default (as Ubuntu)
  - Use Tanglu GRUB wallpaper by default.

188. By Colin Watson on 2014-03-10

* Fix shift-held-down test not to clear other modifier key states
  (LP: #843804).
* Explicitly pass an appropriate --target to grub-install in the postinst
  (suggested by Jordan Uggla).
* Backport from upstream:
  - Use bootaa64.efi instead of bootaarch64.efi on arm64 to comply with
    EFI specification. Also use grubaa64.efi for consistency.

187. By Colin Watson on 2014-01-28

* Install bootinfo.txt and grub.chrp into grub-ieee1275-bin on powerpc and
  ppc64el.
* Port yaboot logic to improve installation for various powerpc machine
  types.
* Improve parsing of /etc/default/grub.d/*.cfg in C utilities
  (LP: #1273694).
* Run grub-install on install or upgrade on grub-ieee1275/ppc64el.

186. By Colin Watson on 2014-01-27

* Add a number of EFI debugging commands to the signed image (lsefi,
  lsefimmap, lsefisystab, lssal).
* Add gfxterm_background to the signed image so that background_image
  works in UEFI Secure Boot mode. Thanks to syscon-hh for the report.

185. By Colin Watson on 2014-01-20

* Remove redundant build-dependencies on autoconf and automake, covered by
  dh-autoreconf.
* In --enable-quick-boot mode, restore previous behaviour of using a
  hidden timeout if GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 (thanks to Sebastien Bacher for
  the report).
* Disable cpio test on kFreeBSD again for now; it fails within cpio itself
  with "field width not sufficient for storing rdev minor".
* Copy shim.efi.signed to the correct path in UEFI Secure Boot mode.
  Thanks to syscon-hh for the report.

184. By Colin Watson on 2014-01-16

* Convert patch handling to git-dpm.
* Add bi-endian support to ELF parser (Tomohiro B Berry).
* Adjust restore_mkdevicemap.patch to mark get_kfreebsd_version as static,
  to appease "gcc -Werror=missing-prototypes".
* Cherry-pick from upstream:
  - Change grub-macbless' manual page section to 8.
* Install grub-glue-efi, grub-macbless, grub-render-label, and
  grub-syslinux2cfg.
* grub-shell: Pass -no-pad to xorriso when building floppy images.

183. By Colin Watson on 2013-12-12

* Backport from upstream:
  - On Linux, read partition start offsets from sysfs if possible
    (LP: #1237519).
  - Fix sector number when writing to non-512B disks (LP: #1253443).
* Regularise indentation of "recordfail" in /etc/grub.d/10_linux.

182. By Colin Watson on 2013-12-03

[ Robert Millan ]
* Backport from upstream:
  - Accept ZFS version 5000 (feature based).

[ Colin Watson ]
* Silence error message on initial installation when /etc/default/grub
  does not yet exist.
* Add GRUB_RECOVERY_TITLE option, to allow the controversial "recovery
  mode" text to be customised (LP: #1240360).
* Backport from upstream:
  - Revamp hidden timeout handling by adding a new timeout_style
    environment variable and a corresponding GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE
    configuration key for grub-mkconfig. This controls hidden-timeout
    handling more simply than the previous arrangements, and pressing any
    hotkeys associated with menu entries during the hidden timeout will
    now boot the corresponding menu entry immediately (LP: #1178618). As
    part of merging this, radically simplify the mess that
    quick_boot.patch had made of /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober; if it finds
    other OSes it can now just set timeout_style=menu and make sure the
    timeout is non-zero.
  - Fix build with FreeType 2.5.1.
