No, nor am I about to.  This is code that I have, that builds, that I'm
submitting to grub.  If you want a different approach, that's fine -
you're welcome to write a patch to do that instead.  I have built this
bike shed and I *really* do not care what color it is, nor do I
appreciate being asked to test other people's proposals for them: you're
presumably just as capable of building the code yourself and seeing if
something works or doesn't.  This is v8 of the series and I'm pretty
much done caring about it at this point.

For completeness, here's what happens if one just defines to grub_abort
without further modification:
