Thanks for your offer, but there is currently nothing to test.

grub-ofpathname is already known to produce NewWorld-incompatible OF pathnames,
so we already know what we need to fix. The tool has been tested on different
machines before and I don't think we will gain any new information by testing
on an additional set of machines.

There will be new images to test hopefully sometime next week, but I need to
relax for the weekend and do some chores at home.
