Two build fixes are committed. is nice to have but not urgent
for 2.02

iso9660 part committed. zfs not sure, it is triggered by non-standard
build options; it needs some discussion how to solve it generically -
there are many places where static analyzer is confused by checking for

That's too late for 2.02, really.

Agreed, let's move it to 2.03

Is applied.

> linux16/linux/linuxefi mess

Support for EFI handover will make linuxefi redundant. But I'm not sure
how you suggest eliminating linux16 vs. linux.
I'm not sure but we have a problem with RH on coreboot because of it.

Should I commit it?
Please do 

What about

- disk IO buffer alignment for small read (I personally prefer the first
version of Leif's patch that exposes alignment in core, it also allows
us to print it in ls output)
a version which just makes a small optimization out of it is fine. Full revamp if this code is a big no. 

- F2FS support

A feature. Can wait 2.03. 
- SMBIOS patches

A feature. Can wait 2.03.  
- getroot: Correctly handle missing btrfs device identifiers.​

this is a bug fix, 2.02
- arm64,xen: add xen_boot support into grup-mkconfig

- [RFC] Add exitcode support​ (or, better, suggestion in this thread to
change default exit code on EFI)

Changing default is good. It's a bug really. 2.02 
- something also needs to be done about
[PATCH] broken ESC navigation if authentication is used​
 Adding to the list
