boot/grub: remove
grub is no longer maintained: it is stuck at version 0.97 with huge patches that have no opportunity to be applied upstream, as upstream has even renamed it grub-legacy. Besides, it no longer builds correctly with recent binutils versions, and even the huge patches we could grab from Debian do not help the slightest. Since upstream really considers it dead, and there are at least two alternatives (grub2 and syslinux), just remove grub. Add a legacy entry. Remove the test cases as well. Signed-off-by: "Yann E.
