I had submitted the grub patch, and at the time, it had worked - now it's not.
And, I'm having trouble finding the correct patch now.

Tushar, I know you monitor this list - can you pull the debian pixmap patch
off patches, until I (or someone else) can find the correct patch?  Looking
at resources, it seems Debian included the support into a tarball, and I
hate to submit a diff between debian's tarball and the stock tarball, because
it would include a lot more than the pixmap support.
