Issue is likely to be fixed in mainline and original reporter failed to answer retest request. Closing. If it still persists feel fre to reopen

Your patch doesn't take care of all version formats supported and is really not checking if CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE is empty or not.

I have fixed this issue in mainline with different patch, can you test it and confirm?

When CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE is set, no seperate initrd is necessary.
grub-mkconfig from grub-1.98 (specifically /etc/grub.d/10_linux)
ignores this and assumes:
# "UUID=" magic is parsed by initrds.  Since there's no initrd, it can't work

I propose following fix:
