File grub2-efi-xen-cfg-unquote.patch of Package grub2

From: Petr Tesarik <ptesarik@suse.cz>
Subject: Unquote parameters written to Xen EFI config file
References: bsc#900418
Patch-mainline: not yet

The GRUB_CMDLINE_* value is copied verbatim to grub.conf, so it is first
parsed by GRUB2 before being passed down to the kernel. OTOH Xen EFI loader
takes the config file options verbatim. This means that any special GRUB2
syntax must be evaluated when generating that file.

Of course, some things are not even possible (e.g. substituting GRUB runtime
variables), but let's call them known limitations.
