Presumably it prevents Grub from passing 'mem=xxxx' on the command line
when booting a Linux kernel. This was originally added because Grub was
briefly slightly better at working out the actual amount of memory in
the system.

Then for a long time Linux was much better, but Grub would still pass
its incorrect value on the command line, overriding the kernel's probe.

And now we just disable it and let Linux work it out for itself.
