grub2 (1.99-12ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
    - Adjust for default Ubuntu boot options ("quiet splash").
    - Default to hiding the menu; holding down Shift at boot will show it.
    - Set a monochromatic theme and an appropriate background for Ubuntu.
    - Apply Ubuntu GRUB Legacy changes to legacy update-grub script.
    - Fix backslash-escaping in merge_debconf_into_conf.
    - Remove "GNU/Linux" from default distributor string.
    - Add crashkernel option.
    - Bypass menu unless other OSes are installed or Shift is pressed.
    - Allow Shift to interrupt 'sleep --interruptible'.
    - Reduce visual clutter in normal mode.
    - Remove verbose messages printed before reading configuration.
    - Suppress kernel/initrd progress messages, except in recovery mode.
    - Show the boot menu if the previous boot failed.
    - Don't generate during grub-install or grub-mkconfig.
    - Adjust upgrade version checks for Ubuntu.
    - Suppress "GRUB loading" message unless Shift is held down.
    - Adjust versions of grub-doc and grub-legacy-doc conflicts.
    - Fix LVM/RAID probing in the absence of /boot/grub/
    - Look for .mo files in /usr/share/locale-langpack first.
    - Build-depend on qemu-kvm rather than qemu-system for grub-pc tests.
    - Check hardware support before using gfxpayload=keep.
    - Put second and subsequent Linux menu entries in a submenu.
    - Preferred resolution detection for VBE.
    - Set vt.handoff=7 for smooth handoff to kernel graphical mode.
    - Update default/grub.md5sum to include maverick's default md5sum.
    - Add nomodeset to Linux kernel arguments in recovery mode.
    - Skip Windows os-prober entries on Wubi systems.
  * Suppress the menu by default on Wubi systems with no other-OS entries
    apart from Windows (LP: #826378).
  * Always store hostdisk drive names in canonical form, fixing 'grub-probe
    --target=drive' output when is absent (LP: #820500).

  * Fix grub-probe detection for LSI MegaRAID SAS devices on kFreeBSD.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Backport from upstream:
    - Canonicalise the path argument to grub-probe (closes: #637768).
    - Skip */README* as well as README* (LP: #537123).
