There is a simple way to add kernel parameters without having to go
back each time a new kernel package is intstalled.


Edit the # kopt line in the menu.list.  It is commented out, and grub
will ignore it.  However, update-grub (the script that gets run every
time a new kernel is installed) will not ignore it and interperet the
list of parameters you put there and add them to every grub entry.

It's made to be easy to administer.

sudo update-grub
after you made the changes and they will be done to all your grub entries.
