I tried this now. Formatted usb with disk utility and then bless it again. It 
shows "EFI Boot" at startup, but when i choose this option, it opens OS X. 
There is no grub menu, different screen etc. It boots with normal way.

I added a grub.cfg for test. I add distro files to usb and create cfg file as 

note: There is 2 harddisk on machine (at slot1 and slot2). They are mirrored 
with soft-raid.


[1]: grub.cfg
#menuentry "MacOSX" {
#  # Set the root device for Mac OS X's loader.
#  root=(hd0,0)
#  # Load the loader.
#  chainloader /usr/standalone/i386/boot.efi
menuentry "GNU/Linux" {
  set root=(hd2,0)
  #search --set /boot/vmlinuz
  # Load the kernel and initrd.
  linux /boot/ root=/dev/sdc1 gpt
  initrd /boot/initramfs-
