Good question.  I'd have to check if the installer does the right
thing on those machines that need initramfs-tools.

Yes, the Kirkwood kernel will never be larger than 2097080 bytes
because of size constraints with other machines.

However, I'm not sure you need a hack like that.  AFAIK the u-boot you
use has UBIFS support built-in so you should be able to simply read a
kernel from the filesystem.  (Maybe I'm wrong about this; I don't have
a GuruPlug.)
