Debian sells something what they call "reproducible build". Check their
website why usage of __DATE__ and __TIME__ is a bad thing.
SUSE does not want to republish an otherwise unchanged grub2 package
just because there was a need to rebuild the package.

Good point, lets drop this patch then, as without the date
I don't think there is much value in it and I don't feel
like spending time on this to come up with another solution.
