/etc/mkinitcpio.conf be overwritten when a new kernel is installed? – Or is it “customize once, works forever”? Never having been so deep into a Linux, I may be simply lacking the right google-bait and that might be all the help needed.

grub-btrfs(4) are read-only. So far this looks good, but I need to know if said
.conf will have to be restored frequently.
