Upstream does not emit linux16 command. Please report this to your distribution.

When using x64 system, initrd16 and linux16 entries are generated
This is not a very big deal by itself (system still boots), but "non-quiet" boot happens in very low-res text mode. After initrd, kernel loads up the correct driver and uses full resolution, but until then it's all low-res. This is even more apparent to users of nvidia driver -- they don't get a graphical boot at all.

In the script /etc/grub.d/10_linux:
  case "$machine" in

Which means this applies to i686 architecture, too.
