Sorry, I got confused.  The generic linux-device / grub-drive conversion tool
is no problem.  I think it's fine to add it.

The problem is if you need grub-probe to work with an input different than
a filesystem path.

If you want the former, feel free to send a patch to grub-devel.  For the
latter, look at my questions and send some feedback.

Or, if nobody wants to send feedback, I guess I'll have to propose something
myself.  But I prefer if this is discussed (given that we have time).
