Exactly? root=/dev/sda will almost never be an appropriate cmdline argument, 
and probably has no business in any GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT either.

Note I mentioned the version I use. I haven't seen Tom H or Daniel D mention 
in this thread what they're using. Grub2 is a moving target. Docs can't be 
expected to remain the same for the 5 releases from 10.10 to now.
