kbuild: add support for squashing uid/gid in gen_initramfs_list.sh
Sometimes it is useful to squash all uid's/gid's to 0:0 regardless of current owner. For example, in build systems that get run as arbitrary users (uClinux-dist). This adds a special "squash" keyword so you can do '-g squash -u squash' and have ownership squashed to root.
