The load I wrote was for PUPA.  I just thrown it in the CVS checkout
of GRUB 2 I have here.  It appears to work fine.  It loads linux and
shows an error about passing init= to the kernel.

That seems fine because I don't set up arguments and the incorrect
root partition is used.  So it seems the linux loader does not have
the bug that it had before.

I think I can better work on linux loading myself because it seems to
work now (for unknown reasons, I guess because of some other bugfixes)
and it is almost finished.  I hope you don't mind and the other tasks
were clear to you so you can focus on another part of the port.
