I don't have access to an xnu system i can boot with grub, so i'm not sure how to correctly implement such a transition.

I can verify that solutions similar to those proposed in http://bugs.debian.org/538099 work for the Linux kernel, though.

I'd be happy to submit a patch just for Linux using GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX if you'd prefer that to be the environment variable chosen.

Or i could submit a patch that uses a generic GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD if present before all kinds of kernls, and a GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX for linux kernels if it is present, falling back to GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD, falling back to nothing.

would that be acceptable to get this included upstream?

linux isn't the only OS having gfxpayload. So this variable has to be suffixed with _LINUX and analoguous variable for xnu must be implemented. Check  if [ "x${GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD}" = "x" ]; then is probably useless

Please add support to GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD on the /etc/default/grub in grub2, this is useful for people tha use vga=xxxx, see the patch in the attachment.
