Description of problem:
> rpm -ql memtest86-3.0-1

The executable should go into /boot, not /usr.

If / or /boot is a separate filesystem, the above can't be added to grub without
specifying a different partition just for the memtest section.

Also, maybe a %post that does an auto-magic grub entry like the kernels do would
be nice (although grubby might have to be taught about it.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install memtest86 rpm with / or /boot being separate
2. try to use :)

memtest86+ adds a nice little script for adding it to the grub config.
