commit 6412e58a6843aaec573a65bacf58308ac4ee9035

    system: Don't make /boot/grub/grub.cfg a symlink to the store.
    This would not work when /boot is a separate partition, as reported by
    Nikita Karetnikov <address@hidden> in <>.
    This fixes a regression introduced in 39d1f82.
    * gnu/build/install.scm (install-grub): Copy GRUB.CFG instead of
      symlinking it, as was the case before 39d1f82.
    * gnu/build/vm.scm (register-grub.cfg-root): Add 'grub.cfg' parameter.
      Make it a permanent GC root instead of an indirect GC root.
      (initialize-hard-disk): Adjust accordingly.
    * guix/scripts/system.scm (install-grub*): Replace use of
      'add-indirect-root' by the addition of a permanent GC root in
