for me it looks like, that either already
grub_relocator_alloc_chunk_addr or at latest
grub_relocator_prepare_relocs should bail out with an error, if the
memory range of the VGA memory (0xa0000 ++) is covered.

What I don't know, respectively didn't found in the code, how and where
this information about this VGA text memory area is excluded/reserved
from the allocator/reallocator. Maybe you can give me a hint ?
