Support longer command lines in GRUB
preupgrade did not work for me, since it generated a kernel command line that included an url to install.img on a mirror, which was too long to fit in 256 characters.
Current kernels support command line of up to 2047 characters, which the attached patch adds support for (at least on i386 w/ PC BIOS, no idea about EFI).
Fixed in grub-0_97-37_fc11
