Embedded Linux on flash with no initramfs. I'm in the USA and recently had lots of "fun" trying to help a dealer in Australia with a unit that apparently had something plugged into the wrong slot. My goal is to always have our system at least boot and complain if physically possible no matter what creative re-configuration the dealers or end-users might have done to it.

As far as I can tell there is no search module that can be used to get
the partuuid at boot time given a grub root device such as (hd0,gtp1). I
think is would be a useful addition since the resulting partuuid could
be passed directly to the kernel as root=PARTUUID=xxx and it does not
seem like it should be hard to do. Am I missing something obvious? And,
before I jump end the deep end of the pool and try to write it, is
anyone else working on something similar?
