Subject[PATCH 1/1] init:add boot option "initramfs_packnum"
Date
During the development phase, we usually enlarge initrd-end to reserve more
memory than the initfs zip exactly occupied. Then we can easily add or delete
files in zip package, without generate fdt again and again. But unfortunately,
if too many zeros followed initfs zip, it will take a long time to break the
loop.

while (!message && len) {
... ...
if (!*buf) {
buf++;
... ...
continue;
}

So, use the boot option "initramfs_packnum" to specify how many zip packages
in each initrd area. When the specified number of packages decompressed in one
area, immediately terminate the loop. Have no impact on current use by default.
