Well, not the least since I don't really agree with this (albeit I can
see where you're coming from) ...

... I don't think I'm the one to make suggestions on how to make
things work with grub in the picture when I continue to be of the
opinion that it shouldn't have been brought into the picture in the
first place.

But for the purely technical (patch) aspect: Anything (e.g.
macroization such that at least some sym_phys() uses can remain
untouched) allowing to limit the impact of said patch on the source
code (thus helping review and perhaps also long term
maintainability) would be a step towards talking me into
withdrawing my objection.
