Summary:  add possibility to boot off the DiskOnChip flash device

Original Submission:  This is a request to add a compile time configuration 
option that
would allow to store GRUB bootloader on DiskOnChip flash memory
device and boot off it.

The DiskOnChip flash device is usually available to the system 
via the 8 KiB I/O memory window (chip select mechanism?) and can
be detected by BIOS as an extension device.

We are waiting for the copyright being assigned to the FSF.
I'm going to apply the patch, once the copyright problem is
