This bug was fixed in the package grub2 - 2.02~beta2-9ubuntu1.2

grub2 (2.02~beta2-9ubuntu1.2) trusty-proposed; urgency=medium

  * debian/patches/install_powerpc_machtypes.patch: updated: do a better job
    at detecting machine types; so as to use the right utility when updating
    nvram for the boot-device. This also fixes adding a CHRP note on the
    chrp_ibm machines, which broke PowerVM mode. (LP: #1334793)
  * debian/patches/ppc64el-disable-vsx.patch: disable the VSX instruction,
    which is enabled by default on POWER7/8 cpu models, to avoid crashes due
    to instruction exceptions. The kernel will re-enable it when necessary.
    (LP: #1454743)
  * debian/patches/ieee1275-clear-reset.patch: clear the text attribute in
    the clear command. (LP: #1454764)
