Genode doesn't see init when booting from grub2 on hard drive

this seems to be solved by installing grub-legacy, but maybe this is also 
interesting for others.

Booting from hard disk via Grub2 works fine for me. I wrote a small script that 
generates Grub2 entries from the menu.lst file. It creates a file 
$build/var/run/$name/40_custom that can be copied to /etc/grub.d/. I attached 
the script and an example entry for the demo scenario to this mail. My script 
is specific for Nova, but adoption should be easy. 

All best
