Hi Why not just add a grub boot screen with an EOL message along
with the EOL release notes?

IMHO, altering boot can be more dangerous, something could go wrong
and the machine not boot.

The initrd is regularly regenerated when lvm2, udev, and the like are
updated. If a /lib/mkinitrd/scripts/boot-eolwarn.sh is added (which can
just stop the splashscreen temporarily and print the EOL message, like
the cryptsetup prompt would), that can't be too detrimental.
