OK, I suggest that for testing you disable Secure Boot both in
firmware setup and in YaST2. Then you will be using standard image
generated by grub-install and will have access to all grub modules
under $prefix. When you are sure serial port works for your setup,
just submit SR to add serial to list of modules in signed grub image
(see grub2.spec).
