there is no info page for grub2-reboot either and I found nothing in the grub2 info page.

Grub is dogmatic GNU project and do not use man pages, so I guess the main problem described here is WONTFIX.

Upstream is aware that their info documentation is out of date. This is thus in the same category as Bug 784547. --help is (mostly?) up to date.

(grub2-reboot do however rely on writing to grubenv from the boot loader. That do not work on all systems, and grub2-reboot is thus not usable as a general mechanism.)
Comment 2 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2012-04-23 09:26:47 EDT

OK, that explains why I could not get it to work. A bit frustrating that a full man page is WONTFIX but I can understand.

Closing bug for now.
