Eliminate unused filesystems from GRUB's stage 2 to bring back free memory
Because memory management in GRUB is so horrible, an expedient band-aid is to eliminate filesystems which are not going to be used. ReiserFS and FFS (the very old BSD Fast File System) are two obvious candidates.
5360 bytes from the are returned by eliminating these, and more experiments show an upper limit beyond 50, but below 60.
