It fixes loading of lvm/raid modules in two situations:

  - In core.img, by grub-install, when they're needed to access /boot.
    This is still not enough to get it working due to another bug
    (detection of partmap).

  - In grub.cfg, by update-grub, when they're needed to access /usr
    for the font file.

No, for that we need to handle recursion in grub-probe, which is the same
we'll need to get partmap detection working on lvm/raid.
