Bug#509237: purge: /var/lib/initramfs-tools' not empty so not removed
This is not about this being a bug in linuz-image, or it being
fixed there, since the suer does not use linux-image or
The user uses straignt kernel source code, kbuild, and make
deb from Kbuild directly. That just isntalls the kernel image. The
user then uses update-initramfs directly to create
/boot/initrd-foo. No linux-image or kernel-package involved.
At thsi point, they also do not want to remove
/boot/initrd-foo. They just want to get rid of initramfs-tools,
which fails, since initramfs-tools does not clean up its internal
Bringing in linux-image or kernel-package is a red herring,
neither one of these packages are actually involved in
initramfs-tools leaving cruft on the box after purge.
