This defeats the point of making GRUB GPLv3, because other parties can easily
avoid the additional restrictions by taking the GPLv2 version and appliing all
these 2-or-later patches.

I certainly don't want to contribute patches in this way, since I'm completely
against things like DRM or patent deals, and I don't want my code to be used
for these purposes.
