Your patch looks like it ought to work;  have you tested it?

You can do that if you like; it's a wiki.

Yes, the patch definitely works. It is part of Fedora's GRUB2 src-rpm package. But I changed the file manually before compiling grub2. The strange thing is that even without any initrd line in the menuentry, the Fedora system boots successfully (my guess is that the Fedora's kernel searches for its compatible initramfs file without relying on grub or grub2).

As for documenting grub-extras, I don't know how to use a wiki . Also please change the behavior of the "help" command as soon as possible. Thank you.
