How does this affect the use of grub-legacy?

grub-legacy also uses grub-probe.

grub (0.97-42) unstable; urgency=high

   * Avoid passing UUIDs to Linux when "/dev/disk/by-uuid/${root_uuid}" does
not exist
* control (grub): Add a note in description pointing at GRUB 2.
(Closes: #488304)
* patches/use_grub-probe_in_grub-install.diff: Use grub-mkdevicemap when
device.map needs to be regenerated (this brings in Virtio support, and
probably others).
(Closes: #491745)
