Well I thought about this, but memtest86+ adds a totally new entry,
should we do the same here, should it only be done for the current
kernel, how would it handle kernel updates, etc.

At present I'm happy to enable it manually when needed, but if people
want it to be more automatic and appear as a boot entry in grub, then
I'm happy enough to do that.
