I ran into this when debugging #241185 (which seems closly related to
this problem as well), Herbert wrote to me:

   Can you please find out why it is so big and if appropriate file a new bug
   report against initrd-tools?

   Now in the mean time please boot with ramdisk_size=16384 so we can
   continue with the testing.

And no, I did not yet find out why it is so big.
