It's not *that* hard to write.  Just probe the filesystem using
modules until one works.  For that module loading is required which
can be done in GNU/Linux.  The main problem is that you need to use
mmap to get executable memory (which is OS specific) and the other
problem are the relocations, the allocated memory needs to be close to
the executable on the PPC.

How is the correct stage1.5 selected in GRUB Legacy?
