Recently upgraded grub to version 1:2.02.beta3-1, and then grub-mkconfig generates a mistaken linux fallback initrd entry:

initrd /boot/initramfs-linux-fallback.img

It should have been as before:

initrd /boot/intel-ucode.img /boot/initramfs-linux-fallback.img

If one doesn't perform a diff between the old and new configuration files generated, one might even miss this entirely.
This task depends upon

Should be fixed in grub 2.02.beta3-2. Please give it a test.

tested grub-mkcofig on 2.02.beta3-2, and now it generates:

initrd /boot/intel-ucode.img /boot/initramfs-linux-fallback.img

As expected, :-)
