Sorry, I didn't search :-\

Apparently both grub_get_prefix() and make_system_path_relative_to_its_root() use the same algorithm. Both do not work on Cygwin due to special (multi- to single-root) mount point handling.

It is desirable to have only one implementation for this non-trivial function. A native C implementation is needed for grub-setup, therefore "grub-probe -t prefix" makes sense for scripts.

If you provide an (obviously better) way to do the same thing, maybe you
could also get rid of the other one in your patch?
