No, not grub-mkimage.  We were talking about the possibility that a C file
can be used as a module or linked in kernel.elf just by changing the makefiles,
without need to modify the code itself (to get grub_foo_init() working).

(Note that, ia64 patch just submitted uses ld in grub-install;  have a look
if you're concerned about that)
