feel like the simplest solution is just to run grub2-mkconfig at every kernel
update, and stop using grubby for this. Then everything would look
consistent- the "Fedora Linux" boot option would have the latest kernel and all
kernels would always be listed under the submenu. (As far as I know, this would
just be a change to the kernel specfile, right?).


The present system is especially ugly with multiboot. I tend to run
grub2-mkconfig by hand after each kernel update just to keep the menu clean.
