"up to 4h, iff. it fits into intrigeri's total allocated time budget" ⇒ I'll only know if this fits once I've done the rest of my work, which won't happen before the 3.10 release.

Not sure if / how much it matters but eca9bf61b0a9a5d7df435a150eea6302bd05b4e8 adds the FSUUID= option to the syslinux config :)

It does not fit. I would still like to look into this at some point but anyone should feel free to take it over. Please reassign the ticket to you before you start working on it, to limit the risk of race conditions and duplicated work :)

Done: see today's updates to #6397, #7475, and #10731.

I did not update the list of things that will need adjustments, after #6397 is done, to fully support #8422: I did that #8422 years ago, it was never used, and it bitroted. I'd rather see us first implement the 6 years old #6397, which will already solve some real-world problems, before I spend time making plans for the next steps.
