The solution to "My kernel update doesn't boot" should be
detect that that happened, give the user that information and fall back
to the old kernel", not "Always show the user a menu that they almost
always don't care about". Solve the actual problem.
Agreed. Having a simple one-shot boot facility would be awesome. If anyone
has ideas on how to accomplish this, please let me know. I'd be willing to
look at implementing this.
