Default Bug#483431: initrd size

Regarding the question on initrd size as discussed on IRC:

- I notice that support for MTD devices is not really useful, since D-I
doesn't support using them as root filesystem yet, anyway.

- As for booting from MMC, this dir is smaller than the other one. If
you only want to add the modules needed for OLPC, these are:

60K mmc/core/mmc_core.ko
16K mmc/card/mmc_block.ko
24K mmc/host/sdhci.ko

although just for a few more kiBs you get to support all kinds of SD
cards, which I'd expect could become a popular install option in general
PC hardware:

16K mmc/card/sdio_uart.ko
16K mmc/host/mmc_spi.ko
8,0K mmc/host/ricoh_mmc.ko
16K mmc/host/tifm_sd.ko
20K mmc/host/wbsd.ko
