grub2: fix a few minor issues in help text
The help text of grub2 explains the detailed steps to create a disk image with grub2 installed on it. However, the steps for the BIOS-based systems have a few minor issues fixed by this patch: - When calling partx to get the partitions detected, we should do it on the /dev/loop0 block device, and not on the underlying disk.img image file. - The grub-bios-setup utility must be called as root to work properly on /dev/loop0. - The steps to cleanup the partx and loop device were missing.

4. Prepare the root partition
sudo mkfs.ext3 -L root /dev/loop0p1
sudo mount /dev/loop0p1 /mnt
sudo tar -C /mnt -xf output/images/rootfs.tar
sudo umount /mnt
