These are specific to gfxterm, not generic how your patch would suggest.

It also checks. This is an alias to hashsum

vbeinfo is a compatibility alias and is reserved for VBE.
Perhaps we should start having commands specifically excluded from help
lists to discourage their use

Ditto. gfxterm-specific

It's available on all platforms featuring CMOS which are all x86
(including EFI, coreboot, ieeee1275, and so on), Loongson, Qemu-mips and
some IEEE1275 platforms (determined at runtime).

GROUPS["cmos"] = GROUPS["x86"][:] + ["mips_loongson", "mips_qemu_mips",
                                     "sparc64_ieee1275", "powerpc_ieee1275"]

Only the ones GRUB supports

Last part is wrong. It refers to boot flag in geli container, not the
one in partmap.
Also I think it's worth mentioning that luks/geli/... aren't autoloaded.

Much more hashes are supported. Currently:

ADLER32: adler32
CRC64: crc64
CRC32: gcry_crc
CRC32RFC1510: gcry_crc
CRC24RFC2440: gcry_crc
MD4: gcry_md4
MD5: gcry_md5
RIPEMD160: gcry_rmd160
SHA1: gcry_sha1
SHA224: gcry_sha256
SHA256: gcry_sha256
SHA512: gcry_sha512
SHA384: gcry_sha512
TIGER192: gcry_tiger
TIGER: gcry_tiger
TIGER2: gcry_tiger
WHIRLPOOL: gcry_whirlpool

This is the same format as used by standard UNIX tools.
