When GRUB_BACKGROUND is set and points to a valid image, 00_header does not emit an insmod for gfxterm_background, which is where the `background_image` command lives. I know there are issues with secureboot and EFI regarding loading modules, which this will still silently error, but it will work with secureboot disabled or on legacy bios installation.

One-liner to correct attached.
