As grub 2.0 was finally released with support for fuloong, I went for
traditional make + make install, since debian's experimental
grub-yeeloong is broken and doesn't install well (and the unstable one
still doesn't work with fuloong)...
I confirmed with just "grub-install" the ELF image generated is good
for mini-pc. So now that works. However I couldn't make the keyboard
work on the grub menu, so I couldn't get to select the linux image to
load on the menu... I even included the usb and the usb_keyboard grub
modules through GRUB_PRELOAD_MODULES on /etc/default/grub.
