111. By Colin Watson on 2015-03-23

* Make grub-common's Suggests on grub-emu architecture-specific, to
  quieten debcheck.
* Remove unnecessary feature test macros from hostfs, to fix building with
  glibc 2.20.
* Backport from upstream:
  - Fix UEFI boot failure with some firmware that returns incorrect paths
    (closes: #735960).

110. By Colin Watson on 2015-01-27

[ Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre ]
* Fix overlap check in check_blocklists for load_env (backported patch
  from upstream commit 1f6af2a9; LP: #1311247).

[ Steve McIntyre ]
* Add support for running a 64-bit Linux kernel on a 32-bit EFI (closes:
  #775202).

[ Colin Watson ]
* Use mtmsr rather than mtmsrd in ppc64el-disable-vsx.patch, since the
  "VSX Available" bit is in the lower half of the MSR anyway, and mtmsrd
  faults on 32-bit systems (closes: #776400).

109. By Colin Watson on 2015-01-03

[ Colin Watson ]
* Generate alternative init entries in advanced menu (closes: #757298,
  #773173).
* When configuring grub-pc, copy unicode.pf2 to /boot/grub/ even if
  /boot/grub/grub.cfg does not exist yet; this matches the behaviour of
  grub-efi-* (thanks, Luca Capello; closes: #617196).

[ Debconf translations ]
* [fi] Finnish (Timo Jyrinki; closes: #774060).
* [mr] Marathi (sampada nakhare; closes: #773901).

108. By Ian Campbell <email address hidden> on 2014-12-22

[ Steve McIntyre ]
* Handle case insensitivity of VFAT filesystem on /boot/EFI when installing
  extra cpoy of grub-efi to the removable media path
  /boot/efi/EFI/BOOT/BOOT$ARCH.EFI (Closes: #773092)
* Make the force_efi_extra_removable debconf prompt only show up when
  configuring grub-*efi*. Closes: #773004

[ Ian Campbell ]
* Improvements to English wording of new debconf template from Justin B Rye.
* Add debian/README.source.

107. By Ian Campbell <email address hidden> on 2014-12-08

[ Steve McIntyre ]
* Add support for forcing an extra copy of grub-efi to the removable
  media path /boot/efi/EFI/BOOT/BOOT$ARCH.EFI (#767037)

[ Ian Campbell ]
* Add myself to Uploaders.

106. By Ian Campbell <email address hidden> on 2014-11-30

[ Colin Watson ]
* Fix up some pointer-to-integer casts in linuxefi so that it can build on
  i386-efi.
* Backport from upstream:
  - Fix typo (gettext_print instead of gettext_printf) (LP: #1390766).

[ Ian Campbell ]
* Correct syntax error in grub-xen-host bootstrap configuration file.
* Log failure when grub-install fails in postinst, rather than failing the
  entire postinst. (Closes: #770412)
* Arrange to insmod xzio and lzopio when booting a kernel as a Xen guest.
  (Closes: #755256)

105. By Colin Watson on 2014-10-15

Disable nvram installation again on chrp_ibm machines that are emulated
by qemu; that doesn't have nvram devices so the nvram utility inevitably
fails.

104. By Colin Watson on 2014-09-26

* On architectures without a real GRUB port, just build the utilities.
  This makes tools such as grub-probe and grub-fstest available
  everywhere, and makes grub-mount available on all Linux and kFreeBSD
  architectures.
* Remove .MIPS.abiflags section from images (thanks, Jurica Stanojkovic,
  although I used a slightly simpler approach; closes: #762307).
* Include a text attribute reset in the clear command for ppc
  (LP: #1295255).
* Disable VSX instruction on powerpc startup to fix booting on ppc64el.
* Stop adding a CHRP note on chrp_ibm machines, since that apparently
  breaks PowerVM and isn't needed on other machine types as far as we can
  tell (LP: #1334793).
* Refactor flicker-free-boot configuration in debian/rules to reduce
  duplication.
* Disable flicker-free-boot on Ubuntu ppc64el for now, as it isn't needed
  there and causes too many problems (LP: #1338471).
* Use nvram rather than nvsetenv on chrp_ibm machines, since that tool is
  better-supported and copes with such things as nvram being missing in
  qemu.
* Remove brace-expansion from the postrm, and switch the preinst and
  postrm to /bin/sh (closes: #762940).
* On ppc64el, look for a PReP partition and install the core image to the
  first one if found. For now this is done by borrowing prep-bootdev.c
  from grub-installer, incurring a dependency on libparted.

103. By Colin Watson on 2014-07-24

* Force grub-pc/mixed_legacy_and_grub2 to be reshown, rather than failing
  when it was already seen (closes: #749571).
* Build with GCC 4.9 (closes: #748003).
* Build for sparc64 (closes: #753784).
* Fix an infinite loop in grub-mkconfig when kernel paths contain regex
  metacharacters. Thanks to Heimo Stranner for the report.
* On upgrade, if we find that one of the install devices no longer exists,
  ask the debconf question at priority critical rather than high.

102. 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.
