grub's default options hardcoded on each entry instead of defoptions

Bug Description

every single time you update the kernel it adds a boot option for that kernel with "quiet splash"

and the defoptions line has "quiet splash" right there. commented out!

how am I supposed to have every boot without quiet this way?
the workaround I use is to edit menu.lst everytime I have a kernel update and remove the hardcoded options from there.

My defoptions has nosplash. but i don't think i can have noquiet.

please, remove "quiet splash" from ALL linux-image packages and uncomment the defoptions from package grub.

that way, everyone can update their own defoptions only once, without having it overwritten at every kernel update.

This is not a bug in the linux-meta package, moving to the grub package.

The defoptions are commented out but are still applicable as they are not read by grub but by update-grub. Normally you can just change the defoptions line and all entries will follow it at the next update-grub.

If that does not work for you can you include your grub menu.lst please.
