The purpose of this patchset is to add initramfs and UUID support for our minimal installer.

Previously, the installed image may not be able to boot up because we use the hardcoded disk
names.

To reproduce, use the following commands.
1. Enable live image types and build out the minimal installer.
2. runqemu qemux86 iso qemuparams="-hdb target-disk"
3. qemu-system-i386 -hda target-disk

We can see that the installed target cannot boot up correctly.

This patchset fixes this problem so that when executing the above commands, the target can
still correctly boot up as long as we configure in local.conf or some other distro config files
to select image-initramfs-minimal as the INITRAMFS_IMAGE.

I recently noticed that other people on mailing list also noticed the 
problem described above.
This patchset provides one way to solve the problem.

Please help review the patches. Any comment or suggest is really welcome.
