So, my grub.cfg now contains:

set gfxmode="0x0"
search --set --file /boot/unifont.pf2
loadfont /boot/unifont.pf2
search --set --file /boot/splash.jpg
background_image /boot/splash.jpg

But this does not work. I also tried loading gfxterm in the
grub2-console. Even with insmod video, insmod efi_fb before.
If I cast terminal_output.gfxterm to the console, grub2 seems to hang.

Any other ideas?
