Bug description:
  apt-get autoremove regenerates the initrd after removing each kernel.
  Since you generally call this command only when your boot volume is
  full of old kernels, it seems sub-optimal to regenerate the initrd
  eight times when removing eight kernels.  Could something be done with
  triggers to do a single regeneration of the initrd at the end?

  This is in 14.04
