I am doing a testing grub from master branch. I find one issue in your commit.
Commit id:

+#if defined(MKIMAGE_ELF64) && defined(_arm_)

The above change is not valid if i build grub in x86_64 platform for aarch64 bit target.
I ran grub-mkimage in x86_64  to generate efi for the aarch64 platform. In this case the add_fixup_entry function is never invoking due to  defined(_arm_). Here You need to check the target platform.
