Can we have a shortcut to avoid specifying that "(hd,7)/" part

"prefix" doesn't have the meaning we're looking for here...

root is not a command but a variable in GRUB 2.

Actually, I see now that it is a command: grub_rescue_cmd_root() in kern/rescue.c. Is that only a rescue mode thing? That seems to be exactly what I need... aside from the very confusing use of "root" meaning where GRUB finds the kernel and "root" meaning where Linux finds /sbin/init.

I cannot find any grub_env_get("root") callers.
