Default "Little Bang 0.94" initramfs-tools release

Newer initramfs comes with lots of fixes and new features:

* Faster boot thanks to Ubuntu merged patches using pre-cached boot scripts.

* Support for several compression schemes as set in initramfs.conf or
overridden by appropriate mkinitramfs call.

* Better MODULES=dep support /sys parsing (Still needs fixes for md).

* Hooks for out of linux-2.6 make deb-pkg generated linux-images.

* Call ipconfig with increasing timeouts to better fit with large scale
clusters.

* Use BOOTIF mac address passed from gpxe in setup_networking.

* Out of the box support for devtmpfs. Hurra for devfs 2.0.

* Loading of the netconsole module together with the specified args,
when netconsole is set as bootarg.

* Adds available, built network drivers in a dynamic way without need
of hardcoded list.

* Smaller and thus faster MODULES=most generated initramfs due to
kicking the video part out of generic initramfs.
