Outdated and dispensable initrd images in /boot

Sometimes update-initramfs leaves old initrd images around in /boot, even when the kernel package is deinstalled. Deleting the file does not help, the next run of update-initramfs will recreate the file.

The solution is simple: all kernels which need to be rebuild are in /var/lib/initramfs-tools/ - just delete the old ones, and the images in /boot, and they will not be recreated.
