Now that we have two use cases for this. I would propose that we first
fine tune interface and then use common one. This is the critical part
of the design and needs to be solved. I wasn't really convinced with the
other proposed interface.

So if you two could propose improved one that can handle following:

- BIOS interrupt service hooks
  - drivemap
  - eltorito emulation
  - custom int13h handler for unsupported controllers
- custom GRUB code to be executed
  - sendkey feature

This way it would be also easier to incorporate patches as there is
already skeleton that can be used easily.

What we don't want is to increase kernel size too much. So please try to
think alternatives that reside on loaded module. There might be some
other options too, but I'll let you guys think a bit first :)
