When reference bugs it would be useful to include the bug title here so
the reader doesn't have to go and look it up.

#690538 relates to providing an option to remove the submenus. Please
can the changelog explain why that is relevant to us.

Did you fix it by removing/reverting the submenu support altogether, as
opposed to e.g. importing the patch from Eric Fischer in the bug report?
I don't see stuff which I'd expect if you had applied the patch. I think
it would be worth spelling out in a bit more detail what the changes
you've made to the baseline for each bug were.

I suppose constructing overlay/etc/grub.d/20_linux_xen from a baseline
unmodified version (checked in, not retrieved from the host) and a
mini-patch-series (also checked in) on the fly is over complexifying
