Log Message:
Update grub to 0.93.  Changes in this version:

* Define the behavior of the boot loader when the load end address is
  zero and the bss end address is zero in the Multiboot Specification.
  Also, add the support into GRUB.
* Finally, we have a Bug Tracking System! Now the preferable way to
  report bugs is to use the BTS rather than sending e-mail to bug-grub.
  See <>, for more
* The appendix "FAQ" in the manual is removed. See the GNU GRUB FAQ on
  the web <> instead.
* The terminal handling code is rewritten radically, and many bugfixes
  are made at the same time.
* The command "color" is effective even in the command-line.
* The command "terminal" takes two new options, ``--no-echo'' and
  ``--no-edit''. If you specify ``--no-echo'', GRUB won't echo back
  input characters. If you specify ``--no-edit'', GRUB will disable the
  BASH-like editing feature. These options are useful when using an
  intelligent terminal (such as the comint mode in GNU Emacs).
* The utility ``grub-md5-crypt'' prompts to retype a password and checks
  if the passwords match.
* Support for booting Linux is rewritten, so GRUB now supports
  large-EBDA systems.
* The menu interfaces supports Page Up, Page Down, and Right Key.
* New command "terminfo", for vt100-incompatible terminals.
* New options, ``-D'', ``-g'' and ``-m'' are supported for FreeBSD.
