Add a recipe for a minimal initramfs image.

Note that the purpose of this recipe is totally different from that
of core-image-minimal-initramfs.bb. The latter is supposed to be used
in the live image to "boot" or "install". The former is more like a
traditional initramfs whose responsibility is to deal with the kernel
parameters and then bring up the real root file system.

After adding this recipe, we could specify INITRAMFS_IMAGE to be
"initramfs-image-minimal". Note that in OE, we didn't have a reference
image recipe for INITRAMFS_IMAGE.
