Bug#357282: initramfs-tools: bugs and missing info in man page for mkinitramfs

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.53
Severity: normal

The man page for mkinitramfs never defines what is meant by the argument
'version'.  An explicit example would be useful to avoid confusion, since
the value of the 'Version' string that is output by 
  dpkg --status linux-image-NNN | grep '^Version' | cut -d' ' -f2
looks as if it is not what is intended by the option [version] for

Also, the same man page refers to a file, mkinitramfs.conf, in error.
It should be initramfs.conf, or better yet, /etc/mkinitramfs/initramfs.conf.
