 usually more reliable, but in some cases it may not be appropriate.  To
 disable the use of UUIDs, set this option to @samp{true}.
 
+@item GRUB_ENABLE_LINUX_PARTUUID
+Setting this option to @samp{true} changes the behavior of
+@command{grub-mkconfig} so that it identifies the device containing the root
+filesystem by the partition UUID via the @samp{root=PARTUUID=...} kernel
+parameter.  This is desirable for Linux systems where identifying the root
+filesystem by its filesystem UUID or device name is imappropriate.  However,
+this option is only supported in Linux kernel versions least 2.6.37 (3.10 for
+systems using the MSDOS partition scheme) or newer.
+
 @item GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY
 If this option is set to @samp{true}, disable the generation of recovery
 mode menu entries.
