[PATCH] initramfs should not depend on CONFIG_BLOCK
initramfs ended up depending on BLOCK: INITRAMFS_SOURCE <-- BLK_DEV_INITRD <-- BLOCK This inhibits use of customized-initramfs-over-ramfs without block layer (ramfs would still be enabled), useful in embedded applications. Move BLK_DEV_INITRD out of 'drivers/block/Kconfig' and into 'init/Kconfig', make it unconditional.

+ bool "Initial RAM filesystem and RAM disk (initramfs/initrd) support"
+ depends on BROKEN || !FRV
+ help
+ The initial RAM filesystem is a ramfs which is loaded by the
+ boot loader (loadlin or lilo) and that is mounted as root
+ before the normal boot procedure. It is typically used to
+ load modules needed to mount the "real" root file system,
+ etc. See <file:Documentation/initrd.txt> for details.
+ If RAM disk support (BLK_DEV_RAM) is also included, this
+ also enables initial RAM disk (initrd) support and adds
+ 15 Kbytes (more on some other architectures) to the kernel size.
+ If unsure say Y.
