r254. Now all we need is some more smarts in the memdisk grub.cfg to do that
nice serial/console switch on boot, which would allow us to put the menu on
screen or on serial as is convenient. I'm hoping Robert can offer some
scripting foo for that. Alternatively, if there were a way to use both
console and serial for in and output at the same time, that would be fine

For the record, the way this works now is that the grub.cfg file in the
memdisk will scan for /grub.cfg on all disks, and execute the first one it
finds. If there are none, you get a grub console.

The other thing that I'd perhaps like to do is putting grub2 module selection
in the buildrom kconfig.
