In adding GRUB boot entries for Xen on Arch Linux using grub-mkconfig
My distribution Xen package installs /boot/xen-$vernum.efi and /boot/xen-$vernum.config

20_linux_xen picks these up as bootable Xen loaders for multiboot2,
and I end up with unbootable GRUB entries for them.

Could grub_file_is_not_garbage be expanded to include *.config?

Would it be appropriate to add a file_is_not_efi and, or file_is_not_config helper function in 20_linux_xen,
similar to file_is_not_sym

Happy to submit these as patches if suitable,
or take to distribution package level if not.
