You can tell DFORMAT how much space to leave for the firmware -- try the
/HELP option or something. We don't yet know how to turn our grub_firmware
binary into a .EXB file which DFORMAT will write to the flash _for_ us.
That would be a nice development -- it shouldn't be too hard to work out
how that file works.
You need to build grub according to the documentation and then see how
large the resulting binary is -- _that_ is the amount of space you need to
