I add an issue with openSUSE on ARM64 server that needed to load a custom device tree (dtb) file directly from grub using the 'devicetree' option. But I haven't found a way to add it automatically in /boot/grub/grub.cfg :-(

So, I made a small patch to do this by adding a new option called GRUB_DEVICETREE_FILE in the configuration file (/etc/default/grub).

I open this bug because I think that this patch can be useful for others.

I have attached the patch to this bug.
