Prefix *is* for locating the GRUB modules and grub.cfg and for nothing

There is no GRUB partition.  The partition we are talking about is a
partition the firmware can access to load GRUB from.  Because this
partition has to be created anyway, it is quite convenient to use it
for the modules as well.

For locating the kernels you need to set root.  If this partition for
the firmware is mounted on /boot, prefix==root.  Which would be nice,
but not a requirement IMO.
