To the best of my knowledge, Multi booting NetBSD using GRUB2

I believe that this was fixed in 1.99.  Which GRUB version did you
use?  I tried with GRUB trunk, and ksyms seem fine (for 5.1 and
-current kernels).

Good News, I indeed use 1.98. Do you think the interface is stable
enough that we should document using GRUB2 in multiboot(8) ?

AFAIK, the interface, i.e., the multiboot specification, has been stable
for a long time, and I'm not aware of any backward-incompatible change in
the specification.  Both GRUB Legacy and GRUB2 conform to this spec.

Regarding the multiboot command-line passed by GRUB2, I'm confident
it won't change.
