[PATCH] UUID support

From: Robert Millan
Subject: [PATCH] UUID support
Date: Thu, 29 May 2008 17:13:36 +0200
User-agent: Mutt/1.5.13 (2006-08-11)

This patch implements UUID support in ext2, then in grub-probe and search
command, and finally in update-grub scripts.

The result is that when UUID can be used (i.e. our /boot is ext2), update-grub
puts the number in grub.cfg as a parameter to search command, and no longer
relies on hardcoded values for the `root' variable.

This is very helpful specially when only maps to broken drive
names (which happens always on OFW and sometimes on BIOS).
