I use mkinitrd to pull in all tools and run guestfsd instead of
/sysroot/sbin/init. This allows me to build the package automated as
unprivileged user in the buildsystem. Creating a loop file requires
root, which is cumbersome in the openSuSE buildservice.

In src/appliance I noticed that initramfs.<arch>.img etc. is obsolete,
will it be removed for 1.20?
