The Wubi installer provides a means for installing Ubuntu into a
loop-mounted filesystem image hosted on a Windows filesystem. lupin-casper
provides hooks to find an ISO image on a hard disk and to read a preseed
file from a hard disk, which are used in the early part of this process.

* Rewrite /usr/share/lupin-support/grub-install to avoid depending on
being able to call the real grub-install with --grub-mkimage and
--grub-probe options, which stopped working when it was rewritten in C
on 2013-11-16.
