I have the next detected kernels in the generated grub's submenu:
Linux-lts (fallback)
Linux (fallback)

The default entry is Linux-lts, which is not what I need.

* How I can remove this submenu and simply show all entries as it was with legacy grub?
* How can I at least force it to show Linux as a default entry, over the submenu?
* Even with GRUB_DEFAULT=2 it shows Linux as a default entry but once I press enter it says "Loading Linux linux-lts...".
* GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT="save" doesn't seem to work.

And these funny names, like "Arch Linux, with Linux linux (fallback initramfs)". Linux Linux linus, Linux linux.

Wiki suggests to not to edit grub.cfg manually, but should I edit 10_linux instead? Is it any better?
How it comes that such an incomplete thing reaches production?

This task depends upon
