Summary:  Allow use of grub-install in chrooted environment

Original Submission:  Is it possible to allow grub-install to be used inside a 
chrooted environment? The main issue here is that grub-install requires a 
correct /etc/mtab which, in a chrooted environment, isn't 100% accurate. 

A possibility would be to have a --root-device=/dev/hda1 option (instead or 
supplementary to --root-directory). This way there is no need for querying 
/etc/mtab and can grub-install be safely used in a chrooted environment.
