Comment 4 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2021-09-19 15:12:31 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 35-beta by Fedora user pbrobinson using the blocker tracking app because:

 grub2 revision 4 fixed some issues on aarch64 and power64le but regressed on armhfp, revision 5 fixed the armhfp issues. It would be useful to get this build in for beta to clean up those issues with grub 2.06 on those arches.
