They add a 'multiboot' command to allow Xen to be loaded without

A review would be welcome before I commit them.
There is too much duplicated code in stand/lib/exec.c. Can you make some of

Fn: diskn

Then I press enter and it jumps right to the boot menu.


P.S I used to use grub before and I did not test any former patches.
