dpkg --compare-versions does sort rc images before non rc ones.
as mentioned in the manpages initramfs-tools updates the "newest" one.

here the assumption is that rc is newer then not rc, which is wrong.
but rc admin should be smart enough to kick rc once the real is out.

so i do not see a special point for adding more complex sorting code.
