grub-install also still (as reported about 2 years ago) tries to use
$grub_device rather than $install_device when getting the partition
table type.

However, I did now manage to boot after fixing that.

So there is a chance I can make a patch to fix grub-install soon so it
actually works on IBM power systems.  Given I have a production machine
and a new machine around for a few days I can experiment until it
is right.
