petsam, I didn't think that was unclear. I asked a specific question, received specific instructions from a maintainer (which we can all assume are correct instructions for what I asked), implemented the instructions, they worked as expected, I referenced that answer in my comment, and linked to that answer when I indicated that it solved the problem. Are you saying that it's necessary for me to not only link to the solution as what solved the problem, but also repeat the solution in another reply of my own? OK, as suggested by ChrysostomusMaintainer:
In your /etc/mkinitcpio.conf, remove
autodetect from your HOOKS array. This makes your regular initramfs exactly like fallback initramfs. If you do this, you may want to disable generating the fallback initramfs, because there is no difference between the two. You can do this by removing
fallback from the PRESETS array of your /etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux.preset (there is separate file for each kernel, for example /etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux414.preset)
In the end, regenerate your initramfs with
sudo mkinitcpio -P

Now the solution is at the beginning, middle, and end of the thread. No possibility of ambiguity.
