Dear GNU Grub Members.
I found weired comments at <Grub>/grub-core/boot/i386/pc/boot.S.
Comments in Line 221, 222 is "ljmp to the next instruction because some
bogus BIOSes jump to 07C0:0000 instead of 0000:7C00.". However,
"ljmp $0, $real_start" is no longer pointing to adsolute address.
This comments were written at version 1.98, when "$real_start" point to
adsolute address with ABS macro. Therefore I think this comments should
be changed. Below is my idea to change that comments.
diff --git a/grub-core/boot/i386/pc/boot.S b/grub-core/boot/i386/pc/boot.S

I will be looking forward to your reply. Thank you.
Best Regard, Minyoung Go.
