I'm replying here as (obviously) I don't have posting rights at arch-dev :)

From what I've been able to understand [1-3], for grub (legacy and
grub2) it should work by using multiple initrd lines or like this:

initrd /path/to/ucode/update /path/to/arch/initrd

I haven't tested it though, so it might be broken and I have no idea of
how to integrate it with the automagical grub.cfg configuration
