I have started playing with GRUB 2 and found the grub-mkrescue utility very
useful.  Basically I want to generate a boot floppy disk that I can later use
in a virtual machine, without touching its virtual hard disk contents.  I also
want this image to show me a menu with a couple of options, so that I do not
have to enter commands continuously.

However, the grub-mkrescue utility lacks the ability to install a custom
configuration file into the image.  I think that adding a --cfg option to it
would be useful.  This option would specify the name of a file to use as
grub.cfg, and the tool would later install it into the generated image.

The attached patch does this.
