[opensuse-factory] Hiding grub prompt when previous boot is successful and when only one OS is installed
Hi,

GRUB is mostly pointless in scenarios where OS boots fine and only one OS is
installed in graphical session. It would be nice to hide it. Fedora has 4
patches for this purpose [1,2,3,4], the only thing we would need to add to this
would be YaST handling of setting variable automatically for graphical target.
I know that snapper is an useful tool for openSUSE, and GRUB is very much
required for this to work, but snapper is almost always used when user isn't
able to boot into the system.

Beyond that maybe it would be nice to think about BLS [5] in openSUSE, as an
extension to GRUB only snapper plugin, it could work for more than just GRUB ;)
