v2:

The post/pre installation/removal scripts also need to be update to skip
the initramfs generation.

For linux-azure and linux-kvm, the patches only contain the changes to the
scripts, since v1 was already applied (and not reverted).

v1:

Allow images to be created without the need of an initrd and also allow
users to run without an initrd if they want to.

The dependency to initramfs-tools was moved to Suggests for the cloud kernels,
and for the regular kernels it was moved to Recommends to be more conservative.
