Bug Description

[Impact]
We need to be able to override the preferred kernel flavour, examples being:

- OEM metapackages need to set the kernel flavour to oem, and later to generic (e.g. when transitioning from 6.0-1000-oem to 6.0-1-generic)

- FIPS kernels might cause a downgrade compared to an HWE kernel, but if you enable FIPS and reboot, you want to be booting a FIPS kernel

[Regression potential]
The change affects the ordering of kernels inside grub, hence a regression could be that we end up with the wrong order of kernels.

[Test case]
TBD

I'm denying this for eoan, as we're almost at the EOL, and this change is a bit too big to do that late in the cycle, and it's not relevant there anyway.

xenial and bionic still need to be done.
