Whoops, sorry, I meant that grub_mkimage would create two core.img
images, one per kernel.img version, and then grub_install would copy
them as usual. Then grub_setup would embed/set up the normal core.img
or the debug version based on a switch. What I propose is basically
modifying grub_mkimage to allow choosing the kernel.img file used and
then adding some lines to grub_install so that the two versions of
core.img are generated (but only the selected is embedded).
