This patch did not work as well as the last one posted (on my test machine). The last one got all the way to trying to run /sbin/launchd off the ramdisk - log post of this one's boot attempt are attached.

Oh, here is my updated menuentry, works well and gives me serial output of the darwin kernel (as well as on the VGA monitor):

menuentry "PureDarwin 9 (phcoder efiemu)" {
       echo "Switching to VESA and booting Darwin (slow)... "
       #bootloader must tickle VESA before xnu can use it
       loadfont /osstore/STAGE1a/grub2/unifont.pf2
       set gfxmode="800x600x32"
       set vbe_mode=0x115
       terminal_output gfxterm
       echo "VESA enabled. Booting Darwin (slow)... "

       #efiemu_loadcore /osstore/STAGE1a/grub2/efiemu64.o
       efiemu_loadcore /osstore/STAGE1a/grub2/efiemu32.o
xnu_kernel /osstore/STAGE2/DARWIN/live/mach_kernel -s -f debug=0x08 serial=2 serialbaud=9600 rd=md0
       xnu_mkext /osstore/STAGE2/DARWIN/live/System/Library/Extensions.mkext
       xnu_ramdisk /osstore/STAGE2/DARWIN/ramdisk.hfs
#       ^^30MB too big? (full /System/Library/Extensions) - yes, box will 
reboot before kernel turnover
#       ^^if ramdisk is invalid, like FBSD, will attempt NFSMOUNT (to nowhere) 
- else, tries /sbin/launchd

New improved version. Numerous bugfixes. Thanks to Florian Idelberger for the time he spent on testing and to David Miller for pointing a nasty mistake out. Also I added fsb autodetection for intel cpus (thanks to Kabyl for the information about Intel speedstep) but I tested fsb autodetect only on my own laptop so it may or may not work in general. Parameter fsb= is still present and overrides autodetect
