[PATCH] disable init/initramfs.c

The file init/initramfs.c is always compiled and linked in the kernel
vmlinux even when BLK_DEV_RAM and BLK_DEV_INITRD are disabled and the
system isn't using any form of an initramfs or initrd.  In this situation
the code is only used to unpack a (static) default initial rootfilesystem.
The current init/initramfs.c code.  usr/initramfs_data.o compiles to a size
of ~15 kbytes.  Disabling BLK_DEV_RAM and BLK_DEV_INTRD shrinks the kernel
code size with ~60 Kbytes.

This patch avoids compiling in the code and data for initramfs support if
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not defined.  Instead of the initramfs code and
data it uses a small routine in init/noinitramfs.c to setup an initial
static default environment for mounting a rootfilesystem later on in the
kernel initialisation process.  The new code is: 164 bytes of size.

The patch is separated in two parts:
1) doesn't compile initramfs code when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set
2) changing all plaforms vmlinux.lds.S files to not reserve an area of
PAGE_SIZE when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set.
