    Make initramfs and kernel filename customizable
    
    New options like --initramfs-filename or --kernel-filename will
    allow user to customize filenames used when installing initramfs
    or kernel into $BOOTDIR. Therefore --kernelname (KNAME) option
    was removed.
    
    Filename can contain placeholders like '%%ARCH%%' which will get
    replaced at runtime. Man page contains more information.

menu.lst is from grub legacy which is gone in Gentoo. We will keep grub support working as long possible but please migrate to grub2.
