If the multiboot loader is used,
gfxpayload seems to be completely
ignored. If the image does not
request the graphics mode, then
grub switches to text, regardless
of what gfxpayload says.
This is a problem but is tolerable.
The worse problem is that if you
set the flag to request the gfx mode
but in the multiboot header set the
mode parameters to 0 for auto, you
hope that in this case gfxpayload will
be used. Unfortunately this is not the
case: instead grub seems to be taking
the mode from EDID.
