Refactor jasper-initramfs to use more shared components

Registered by Emmet Hikory on 2010-10-15

jasper-initramfs contains a collection of essential hardcodings and hacks. These ought be refactored so that the result leverages oem-config more heavily, perhaps uses preseeding with some d-i components, and otherwise is made more modular and controllable.
