os-prober finds only intel-ucode.img instead of intel-ucode.img & kernel initrd. Calling "linux-boot-prober /dev/sda5 2> /dev/null | tr ' ' '^' | paste -s -d ' '" results in:


Additional info:
* packages to fix grub 1:2.02.beta2-5, os-prober 1.64-1
* affected files: /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober, /usr/lib/linux-boot-probes/mounted/40grub(2)

Steps to reproduce:

- install intel-ucode and os-prober
- run 'grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg'
- only 'initrd /boot/intel-ucode.img' gets added to os-prober entries in grub.cfg

Still required to manually update initrd lines in /boot/grub/grub.cfg (### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober ###) after running 'grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg'
