The warnings could be suppressed somehow, but I don't think it's the right thing to do. 64-bit grub-emu cannot load 32-bit modules (and vice versa). 64-bit grub-emu could load 64-bit modules in principle, although we don't compile them. We could compile special grub-emu modules, but I would not spend any serious effort on it.


I think that using grub-emu might be a good idea for testing. I think there 
should be grub-emu architecture that could be compiled and in example there 
would be grub-emu specific disk layer, input layer and so on. So we could use 
grub-emu almost as same way we can do in real runtime environment. I know Marco 
will be using grub-emu like this on his GSoC project and I think it is a good 
thing too. But it needs some work of course.

We could do some special testing framework using this method. Eg. we could 
drive user input from special user input module that can be controlled from 

So please, do not at least remove support for using 64bit modules on 64bit 
systems :) (or otherwise make it harder to be supported later on)
