- vdX and xvdX are supported
- ida is supported
- i2o is supported
- I don't know the status of multipath, except that GRUB never supported it.
I know grub-installer has some hack which is supposed to make it work, but
I have no idea if my proposed change would break that or not
Alternatively, you can fix convert() to add '1' to each partition. This
compensates for GRUB 2 counting partitions from 1 instead of 0.

still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
