I'm not using it! The above linux-image package invokes it.

I never asked for it. If I remove yaird, the linux-image package
complains that it doesn't find mkinitrd.yaird.

Even if I generate the initrd.img file using a different
utility, the linux-image package still tries (and fails)
to invoke mkinitrd.yaird every time.

I have installed update-initramfs, however the linux-image
package still looks for yaird.

Nothing in /etc/alternatives suggests an alterative.

I like apt's dependency management, but it does bring
another level of complexity.
