Please consider decreasing the number in 99-linux.hook and 99-linux-lts.hook file names. It is possible to have another hook that takes the generated initramfs images as an input. For example, they are needed to create a combined UEFI kernel image using the systemd EFI stub [1][2].

Currently a user can use 999-custom.hook or 99a-custom.hook (or with no numbering at all), but this is a workaround. A value of 90 or 95 would seem appropriate for the mkinitcpio hook.

Note: the same is true for linux-grsec and linux-zen, but they are not in core, so I did not list them at this time.

Additional info:
* linux 4.8.13-1
* linux-lts 4.4.38-1

[1] /usr/lib/systemd/boot/efi/linux*.efi.stub
