The patch you are talking about is for GRUB Legacy, this mailinglist
is about GRUB 2.

Personally I wouldn't mind such support.  Can you please describe what
this support means?  I assume it is just a filesystem that needs to be
supported?  I don't have the hardware, but implementing the filesystem
should be easy if someone can give me an image of a filesystem.
