Hatayama-san, would you consider implementing MNP-based driver for GRUB?
Having at least proof of concept available for testing would be good.

Are we sure that we want to migrate to MNP? As I saw others (e.g. PXELINUX,
iPXE) use SNP and it work for them.

If yes then I can post my unfinished rebase work for Solaris GRUB2 MNP patches.
I did that for our internal needs, however, I did not finish it because usptream
GRUB2 solved our problems. Well, patches are very raw, based on very old GRUB2
(Apr 2012) and do not build. However, maybe they could be a good starting point
for further work.

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.

Do you also observe problems with 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.
