Description of problem:
The default /etc/sysconfig/kernel on RHEL 8 says:
# UPDATEDEFAULT specifies if new-kernel-pkg should make
# new kernels the default
However, there is no new-kernel-pkg in RHEL 8.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to figure out what mechanism updates the bootloader upon kernel update.
2. Get to /etc/sysconfig/kernel and read the comment.
Get stuck looking for new-kernel-pkg.
Get comment which points the admin to the up-to-date mechanism which processes that UPDATEDEFAULT.
Could bootloader devs please look on this issue and tell us their opinion?
