I don't understand.  How would this work around the problem?

It would work around the problem if appending modules to kernel.elf with grub-mkimage could be completely avoided.

I have a patch for PowerPC, but I think I'll hold it until your patch is
committed.  I could change my patch to be more in-sync with i386, in
particular use /boot/grub as the blessed directory.

Cool!  Could you send it to the list?  I'd like to see if it'll work on
i386-elf targets.

OK, attached.  Sorry, this mailer would break the patch otherwise.

Ah.  Could be, yes.  The mechanism is basicaly that GRUB checks for an *.lst
file (I forgot which) which teaches it which dependencies each module has.

In core.img build time I don't know, but it's probably the same.

That explains why biosdisk is not loaded by itself. No module depends on it (which is correct).
