I ported that on top of grub2 upstream this January. It is based on
upstream of 2015-01-28.
so need to revert 4fe8e6d f348aee c52ae40 49426e9 cf2b4a3 from current upstream.

We (x86 system group) have used it internally for a while. It solved
all the uefi pxe booting
problems that we met with grub2, like 1g intel supper slow, or 10g
intel does not even start.
