When using coreboot with GRUB, you usually have either:

  - A single GRUB, in chip, with a hand-crafted configuration.

  - Two GRUBs, one in chip which loads the other one from disk.  The
    configuration for the first is hand-crafted but the second one would
    usually be grub-mkconfig'ed.

In this case sounds like the right place for this would be the hand-crafted
part.  There's some example script code in:

How about adding it there?
