However, this usage is against the original meaning, thus the naming is not 
appropriate any longer. In addition, I don't like that we make an ad-hoc text 
output (the first line is a fs module name, the second line is a root device 
name, etc.).

So I propose that we rename the utility to "grub-probe" and add some options 
to change the target of grub-probe. The default should be probing a fs to 
help people who are used to grub-probefs. Here is an example:

$ grub-probe --target=fs
$ grub-probe
$ grub-probe --target=drive
$ grub-probe --target=device

What do you think?
