There is a problem with the patch, so please don't.  When booting on
the pegasosII I see the following problem:

That is when I am booting using `boot hd:4 grub)'.

The prefix contains an OF device name which will not work in GRUB,

path in /aliases and set the prefix to the alias?  That will be
something that will work and is more user friendly I think.

Another thing we could do, but which is a bit more ugly, is creating
an alias.  I am not sure if it is possible to create an OF alias from
GRUB, but I assume it will be.
