  update README.Fedora (#734090)
  fix comments for the hack for upgrading from grub2 < 1.99-4
  fix sed syntax error preventing use of $RPM_OPT_FLAGS (#704820)
  make /etc/grub2*.cfg %config(noreplace)
  make grub.cfg %ghost - an empty file is of no use anyway
  create /etc/default/grub more like anaconda would create it (#678453)
  don't create rescue entries by default - grubby will not maintain them anyway
  set GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true so saved defaults works (rbhz#732058)
  grub2-efi should have its own bash completion
  don't set gfxpayload in efi mode - backport upstream r3402
- Handle dmraid better. Resolves: rhbz#742226
