Hi Ard,

In fact I am working with Guillaume to try booting zImage kernel and openSUSE
from grub2.04 + arm32-efistub so that's why we get this issue on RPi2, which is
one of the test machines we have. However we want a better solution for all
cases but not just RPi2 since we don't want to affect other platforms as well.

Regards,
Chester
