initramfs: support initrd that is bigger than 2GiB
When initrd (compressed or not) is used, kernel report data corrupted with /dev/ram0. The root cause: During initramfs checking, if it is initrd, it will be transferred to /initrd.image with sys_write. sys_write only support 2G-4K write, so if the initrd ram is more than that, /initrd.image will not complete at all. Add local xwrite to loop calling sys_write to workaround the problem. Also need to use xwrite in write_buffer() to handle: image is uncompressed cpio and there is one big file (>2G) in it. unpack_to_rootfs ===> write_buffer ===> actions[]/do_copy At the same time, we don't need to worry about sys_read/sys_write in do_mounts_rd.c::crd_load. As decompressor will have fill/flush and local buffer that is smaller than 2G. Test with uncompressed initrd, and compressed ones with gz, bz2, lzma,xz, lzop.
