It appears that since r4534 (move to Kconfig), Multiboot information is no
longer built in by default.  You have to enable it in "System tables" /
"Generate Multiboot tables (for GRUB2)", then GRUB works fine (at least
on QEMU, which I just tested).

Coreboot developers: would you consider enabling it again?  The overhead
is minimal, and it would make this less confusing for users.

  how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
