menuentry 'Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.37-rc7+' --class ubuntu --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
        insmod part_msdos
        insmod ext2
        set root='(hd0,msdos1)'
        search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 9f59ebbf-6aab-4581-8234-81a092728571
        linux   /vmlinuz-2.6.37-rc7+ root=/dev/mapper/lynx-root ro   quiet splash
        initrd  /initrd.img-2.6.37-rc7+

  the grub entry for the working 2.6.37-rc5+ kernel is identical other
than the kernel version references, of course.
