OTOH, if --prefix is used to override prefix to a value that is not of
the '(UUID=xxx)' form, it works just fine.

So I'm submitting a patch that implements --prefix, without having grub-install
use it.  This is useful already (for manual installs), and I'd like to use that
--prefix option for Coreboot later too.
