I think it would be great if /etc/grub.d/20_memtest86+ had a variable MEMTEST86_CMDLINE that could be set in /etc/default/grub. This would be useful for enabling serial console with memtest86+ using MEMTEST86_CONSOLE="console=ttyS0,115200".

Additional info:
* grub-common 2.00-1
* memtest86+ 4.20-2
This task depends upon

Typo: MEMTEST86_CONSOLE="console=ttyS0,115200" should be MEMTEST86_CMDLINE="console=ttyS0,115200".

Report this feature request to GRUB upstream.

Any progress?

It appears that file is provided by Arch, so not an upstream issue.
