tile: expect new initramfs name from hypervisor file system
The current Tilera boot infrastructure now provides the initramfs to Linux as a Tilera-hypervisor file named "initramfs", rather than "initramfs.cpio.gz", as before. (This makes it reasonable to use other compression techniques than gzip on the file without having to worry about the name causing confusion.) Adapt to use the new name, but also fall back to checking for the old name. Cc'ing to stable so that older kernels will remain compatible with newer Tilera boot infrastructure.
