Sorry, no answer. But it seems this would be a great asset. I'd like to
follow up on that.

By the way, not only remember the trials, but take time into account as
well. Something like < 10 minutes: boot fail, something like > 24 hours:
try again. Don't bash me for the time of indecision. Or, like in
networking: increasing the intervals per failed boot.Is there a way yet
for the OSes to communicate to grub (-> writing a flag some place; for
boot success, clean shutdown (versus crash) ) ? If yes, I'd rather
advocate to consult this info as primary info. 3 clean shutdowns: boot
the system again. 3 crashes: Even if boot succeeds, maybe try something
more reliable.
Here we might as well want to have two instances of the same system;
e.g. on 2 different disks.
