Summary:  partition table should be read in real_root_func

Original Submission:  Currently, GRUB tries to read partition table data at the
boot time when chain-loading a boot loader. This is bad,
because boot_func assumes that it never fail and it isn't
easy to remove such an assumption.

Instead, partition table data should be read in
real_root_func, because root and rootnoverify can fail
gracefully and the basic information is available when
running either of those commands.
