Hum, interesting.  the kernel binary package i built had

  Depends: initramfs-tools | linux-initramfs-tool

i think, so it hadn't even occurred to me to try it without the
initramfs.  looks like the debian-built ones have that too:


Maybe that dependency should be dropped?

Initramfs is nice to have for recovery situations, but uboot seems to be
flexible enough to pull in such a thing via other means if i need it, so
it'd be great to not have the update-initramfs churn on new-kernel

If the uImage remains < 2MiB, it might be possible to even have a backup
kernel stashed in the top half of /dev/mtd1
