[PATCH] Drivemap module

From: Javier Martín
Subject: [PATCH] Drivemap module
Date: Fri, 04 Jul 2008 04:12:08 +0200

Just an updated version of the patch that adds support for device-like
names instead of raw BIOS disk numbers, i.e. this is now supported:
        grub> drivemap (hd0) (hd1)
In addition to the already supported:
        grub> drivemap (hd0) 0x81
The effect is the same: the second BIOS hard drive will map to (hd0)
through the installed int13h routine. The new syntax does not require
the target device name to exist (hd1 need not exist in my example), and
the parsing is very simple: it accepts names like (fdN) and (hdN) with
and without parenthesis, and with N ranging from 0 to 127, thus allowing
the full 0x00-0xFF range even though most BIOS-probing OSes don't bother
going any further than fd7 and hd7 respectively.

For newcomers, full info on the patch is available on the list archives
- it was proposed on June and its discussion deferred for "two or three
weeks" because the developers were busy.
