>Description:
The Debian/kFreeBSD folks discovered some issues with their grub breaking upon a move from 8.1 to 8.2; it seems to have been tracked down to an ABI change in libgeom that did not have an accompanying version bump, per
http://svnweb.freebsd.org/base/head/lib/libgeom/libgeom.h?r1=182843&r2=202454
and
http://lists.debian.org/debian-bsd/2011/06/msg00141.html
(and the rest of the traffic on debbug #630107).

I'm reporting it here so it doesn't get lost.
