    I note there is a grub2 update available today, with updates to:

    • grub2-2.00-19.23.1.x86_64.rpm
    • grub2-branding-openSUSE-12.3-6.38.1.noarch.rpm
    • grub2-efi-2.00-19.23.1.x86_64.rpm
    • grub2-i386-pc-2.00-19.23.1.x86_64.rpm and
    • grub2-x86_64-efi-2.00-19.23.1.x86_64.rpm



    Checking the change log I note:
    Code:
    Distribution: openSUSE 12.3
    * Fri Jul 12 2013 mchang-at-suse.com
    - refresh grub2-fix-menu-in-xen-host-server.patch: In domU we
      have to add xen kernel to config. (bnc#825528)
    It appears to be pretty innocuous, and I think I will install it. Given the 'hack' I applied (to copy shim.efi over bootx64.efi, and to copy the contents of /boot/efi/EFI/opensuse into /boot/efi/EFI/Boot) I suspect all I will need to do after updating is check the file dates of the files in /boot/efi/EFI/opensuse and if they are updated, copy them again into /boot/EFI/Boot. I'll also check shim.efi to see if it has been updated, and if it has I will also copy shim.efi over bootx64.efi
