I mean we enumerate the "whole disk" devices from the devices.map, use
get_storage_info() on them and compare the result with the storage
information for the looked up file.

If both use the same underlying device, we use grub's own partition
information to find the one which contains the file, then cook a
/dev/hdXsY device name for it.

(This is the approach used in the patch sent.)
