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).


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.
