Title:
  degraded performance of update-grub 1.99-2ubuntu1 and higher

Status in “grub2” package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress
Status in “grub2” source package in Oneiric:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: grub2

  The time to procede a "sudo update-grub" during an installation or
  deinstallation a kernel is not acceptable long. This happens since
  update to version 1.99-4ubuntu1. Additionally the CPU is running at
  100% the whole time.

  Output terminal during deinstallation:

  The times of the example are:

  - until "Generating grub.cfg ..." = 45 sec
   
  - time to provide first pair of kernelimages = 2:30 min

  - time  topprovide second pair of kernelimages = 1:30
