Description

For details see https://fate.suse.com/317701

First check if the Feature status is "done".

In past perl-Bootloader is used as abstraction layer over various bootloaders and also as a way how to not write code in ycp for bootloader.
Now situation is completelly different. Yast code is in ruby. We support only single bootloader. And last but not least GRUB2 configuration is just writting some values to inifile like files and run some scripts.
In such situation perl-Bootloader just adds additional source of problems with no clear benefits.

So proposal is to write config files and run scripts directly in yast2-bootloader and keep perl-Bootloader only as thin layer for updating kernel to ensure menu is regenerated after new kernel installation.
