While looking at another problem I notice that in TW YaST2 Bootloader
module appears to call grub2-install directly, instead of calling
perl-Bootloader. Not only that, but it also called grub2-install where
there was *no* change in bootloader location, so simple grub2-mkconfig
would be sufficient. Is it intentional? This looks like step backward,

Dropping perl-Bootloader and calling grub2-install and grub2-mkconfig
directly is intentional. There are plans to drop perl-Bootloader from
the distribution entirely.

About the extra call to grub2-install, is it harmful?
