That doesn't seem to be a problem which got introduced with these
patches? I. e. if you didn't have grub on the "other" device, it
formerly would fail to boot, too?
I am a bit nervous about automatically changing the boot sector of
already installed systems, TBH. There might be cases where people
explicitly configured it that way. So adding a postinst snippet to
detect this situation is fine, of course.
Or is the problem that configuration files actually *say* "please
install grub on all devices", but we just didn't? In that case this
change would be okay for me.
