Actually, grub itself doesn't need any of that, it simply passes it on to
the Linux kernel.  :)  But the kernel would have needed that all along.

I suspect it was getting it from someplace else before your 7.3 upgrade.
Since you seemed to have an appropriate append statement in /etc/lilo.conf,
I suspect you had been using LILO previously, and just switched to grub in
this latest upgrade.  Since grub is the default selection, it's easy to do
that without even realising it.
