Description Adam Purkrt 2019-12-10 10:20:59 UTC
Package app-emulation/xen installs a config file to (e.g.) /boot/xen-4.12.1.config. Later, when running grub-mkconfig, this file is interpreted as a multiboot image and incorrectly added as a separate menuentry, which does not work.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install sys-boot/grub and app-emulation/xen grub-mkconfig
Actual Results:  
There is a menuentry in the output produced by grub-mkconfig, pertaining to "/boot/xen-4.12.1.config".

Expected Results:  
The menuentry should not be there; the "/boot/xen-4.12.1.config" config file should be ignored when creating boot menu entries.
