Here we go again, after some suggestions from Bean on IRC.

It does now stop copiing the module section to low memory.  Instead, we just
make sure memdisk grabs its own copy of the data (as is done with ELF modules),
and use the module section at GRUB_MEMORY_MACHINE_DECOMPRESSION_ADDR for the
whole dance.

Ah, and it saves 40 bytes in kernel, and 48 bytes in memdisk :-)

  how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
