Appended initramfs was the original spec; that it can (in most
situations) be passed using the old initrd= is a mere coincidence.
Probably initramfs images should have been generated with '.cpio' instead of
'.initrd', but it's a bit late to change that.
The no BIOS bootloader situation is a case that demostrates why initramfs
was specified as being appended to make a single file.

Why do one side of a triangle when you can do all three. Somewhere, GB.
