The license state that their README should be distributed together
with GRUB 2, if I understand it correctly.  As you might guess, this
is not acceptable.  Please be careful when using code from other
projects (or even better: totally avoid it!), at least tell us you did
so when submitting a patch.  Are you sure only the color space
conversion and the IDCT are the only things from the jpeg group you
used?  Please double check...

If it is only color space conversion and IDCT, I am sure we can write
our own code for this.  If you do now have the knowledge, I can help
you with this or point you to some documentation, if you'd like.

I hope you understand my situation...  I really like your code and I
want to help in any way to integrate it into GRUB 2.
