Aside from the UUID-issue I am fiddling with booting ISOs from hdd.

Numerous howtos, but I think it doesn't work with isos on LVM and/or
RAID ... sigh. One ubuntu-howto said that, so I even tried to store the
files on an NTFS partition ... no success so far.

Anyway. Grub 2 boots, good enough for me now ;-)

I can boot the systemrescuecd from /boot/systemrescuecd-x86-2.8.0.iso on
lvm. No raid though.

menuentry "SystemRescueCD" {
set isofile=/systemrescuecd-x86-2.8.0.iso
loopback loop $isofile
linux (loop)/isolinux/rescue64 docache isoloop=$isofile
initrd (loop)/isolinux/initram.igz
}

I had to use

set isofile=/boot/systemrescuecd-x86-2.8.0.iso

but then it worked. Yes, thanks! (that isoloop= option was new to me)

Now looking at the grml-options, just curious.

Should I file a bug? Anyone else hitting this?
I hesitate as I might have forgotten something simple/stupid.

Me too. I have 2 kernels in the boot menu. "Production" and
"Experimental". Boot defaults to "Production". New kernels are loaded
as experimental. If it panics/dies consistently, I go back to square 1.
After it works OK for a few weeks, I run a "promote" script that copies
"Experimental" to "Production", and the cycle can begin again.

GRUB_PLATFORMS is a use-expanded variable. Portage translates it into
special use flags at runtime. Other use-expands include LINGUAS,
VIDEO_CARDS, INPUT_DEVICES.

The easiest place to define a use-expanded variable is make.conf. You
could use package.env instead, or specify the use flags manually
without the use-expand magic in package.use.

I learned that gcc-4.7.1 does things different ...

and how to boot from sw-raid w/ genkernel and grub 2.

See yourself at b.g.o. , link above.
