[RFC] rename update-grub to update-grubcfg

There was already the topic to rename update-grub to grub-update[0]

On Debian such things are always called update-something not

I just told again in a Debian Bugreport to use grub-install to update
grub in real.

So I suggest to rename update-grub to something like update-grubcfg or
update-grub-cfg in the hope this makes it more clear for people that
this is mainly for /boot/grub/grub.cfg and not for updating everything
else for grub too.
