Current grub2 (2.02 beta2 at the moment) includes progress module that
is supposed to display current percentage and estimated speed. Somehow
it does not for me, but may be it just loads too fast. You could try to
build it (may be it is packaged already). You will need to do "insmod
progress" before loading files.
