I raised today the topic on the debian-boot mailing list.

In the meantime, we could avoid calling os-prober from grub by adding
GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=true in /etc/default/grub

as os-prober makes no sense in server environments [1]

IMHO this way of bypassing os-prober is cleaner than adding a 'Conflict'
in our zfs-grub package, since it minimizes the packages conflicts when
adding our proxmox repo on top of debian's.

Should I prepare a patch ?
