The multiboot module on i386-ieee1275 was using variables that only have a
meaning on i386-pc (and i386-linuxbios):  grub_os_area_addr,
grub_os_area_size, grub_lower_mem and grub_upper_mem.  A bunch of
unnecessary cruft from i386-pc port was being included, because at the
beginning I thought I would base the multiboot loader on i386-pc (like I
did for i386-linuxbios), but this turned out to be a wrong approach.
