grub-install doesn't remove old Ubuntu EFI entries

Bug #632706 reported by Mario Limonciello on 2010-09-07

Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub2

After a successful grub-install run, a boot entry for "Ubuntu" is created using efibootmgr. If grub-install is reran (say for a scenario of a reinstall for some reason or another), another "Ubuntu" entry is created rather than re-using the old one, or removing the old one before adding this new one.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Make grub-efi-amd64 conflict with grub-pc as well as the other way round
    (LP: #632642).
  * Extend EFI initialisation code to understand (,$partition)-style
    prefixes. If the EFI System Partition is on the same disk as
    /boot/grub, use this rather than allowing GRUB to set the prefix to the
    EFI System Partition by default (LP: #632775). (If they're on different
    disks, grub-install already used a UUID to find /boot/grub.)

  [ Mario Limonciello ]
  * Modify ubuntu_efi_install to check for case-insensitive EFI distributor.
