Subject: [PATCH] Add GRUB_DISABLE_UUID.

This will cause "search --fs-uuid --set=root ..." not to be generated by
grub2-mkconfig, and instead simply attempt to use the grub device name
as it understands it.

+@item GRUB_DISABLE_UUID
+Normally, @command{grub-mkconfig} will generate menu entries that use
+universally-unique identifiers (UUIDs) to identify various filesystems to
