ad copyright:
I will send the copyright snail-mail at this friday. Then I'm leaving to
Norway for one month.

ad modules:
In fact the dependencies are written somewhere in elf format and
depmod.lst is only for user to see what depends on what.

I wrote simple cmd-autoloading patch, but it triggers some mm-bug which I hunt
now. Moreover my network card in my laptop (where I hack for grub) is broken,
so I will post the patch when I return.

ad normal mode chainloader:
Consider moving loader/i386/pc/chainloader_normal.c to
commands/chainloader.c. I don't know which placement is better. (This
file will not contain any architecture dependent code as long as
arguments passed to command chainloader will be same for all
