This should be safe, because grub won't try to read the ffs in this

That should pass me straight to the netbsd bootloader and I can

Out of curiosity, is anyone else seeing grub dump core with amd64 current? Ever since there has been some binary compat issues, it hasn't worked for me. All the prerequisites are there ...

Luckily I don't actually need the grub cmd line for anything.
