We would need to duplicate the code that iterates through the logical
partitions in the chainloader or we can change
pc_partition_map_iterate hook function to also receive
grub_pc_partition (we can't use the pc_partition_map_iterate cause the
hook function only receives a grub_disk_t and grub_partition_t, but
not the grub_pc_partition that's necessary to reconstruct the
partition info).
