No. I used grubfs as the umbrella term for all the filesystems I
imported from (legacy) grub. The reason I used these fs drivers was
they are small and easy to include in own projects. The grub2 fs
drivers supported a lot less filesystems, so I never added support to
include these drivers as well.
Except for zfs there's probably enough filesystems in openbios by now..
