Yes, that's it.  Specially for situations in which there's no other way
(like netboot images, or in the future coreboot when it works on ELF).

I just added it because we don't seem to have a way to define which modules
should be autoloaded (other than grub.cfg itself).  And I'm afraid not loading
it by default will confuse users.  I don't know how to improve this, but ideas
are welcome, of course.
