Possible, but I suspect that it has no good effect. When you load filesystem 
modules, GRUB will access several blocks even if caching is efficient. The 
overhead of trying to mount UFS2 is only 4 accesses. So my feeling is that 
this would be negligible.

Anyway, I will implement a simple one first. If it looks too slow, we can 
improve it later.
