Searching UUID on floppies

An old system with a floppy drive has a minor regression with the
current GRUB.  It makes some noises for a second or two when GRUB loads,
apparently trying to find a floppy disk in the drive.

It's possible that some misconfigured systems may even hang or wait for
a long time if the floppy drive is absent, but BIOS expects it to be
present.  It's easy to blame users, but it will be seen as a regression.

Perhaps the UUID search should start with the hard drives and then go to
the floppies as the last resort?
