    Revert "installer: Create an initial initrd unconditionally."
    This reverts commit 0c69777ed12f9dff4a80f46f9ef730837791cf33.
    Due to shortcomings of the CD9660 filesystems, hardlinks end up
    having different inode numbers on it, which leads to them being
    treated like separate files when copying etc.
    As a result, the initrd put together by mkinitrd from a CD9660
    would end up being around 230MB large where it actually has to
    be below 15MB.
    We will solve this in nrelease instead, putting together the
    initrd from the building machine.
