I agree, sorry for being so stupid before. Now that I have checked in
the code and added printk I see:
[    0.000000] DDDD param=BOOT_IMAGE, val=.../boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-rc3...
[    0.000000] DDDD param=root, val=.../dev/sda3...
[    0.000000] DDDD param=ro, val=...<NULL>...
[    0.000000] DDDD param=acpi_osi, val=...!Windows...
[    0.000000] DDDD param=2006, val=...<NULL>...
[    0.000000] DDDD param=nmi_watchdog, val=...0...
[    0.000000] DDDD param=reboot, val=...pci...

which confirms your interpretation.


I have filed a bug against grub-pc on Debian and the bug report will
be Cc-ed to this list.

I guess we should simply pull the plug on grub2 and get rid of it.

Hopefully that is something they will care about.

Now the only thing I want to know what this acpi_osi stuff was for ;-)

Best wishes

One who kindly attempts to wipe an apparent kirby (q.v.) off another's
face with a napkin, and then discovers it to be a wart or other
permanent fixture, is said to have committed a 'kirby misperton'.
