  initrd.img symlink is absolute

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When the linux-image package is installed, it creates symlinks from
  the root directory:

  # ls -l /
  initrd.img -> /boot/initrd.img-3.11.0-13-generic
  vmlinuz -> boot/vmlinuz-3.11.0-13-generic

  This is needed for booting the currently installed kernel (managed
  from within the distro for security updates etc) in certain
  environments, such as virtual hosts or root-NFS booting.

  The bug is that the initrd.img symlink is absolute, since the
  test_relative() perl function checks for the presence of the
  initrd.img file, which is created after the postinst scripts runs, so
  it assumes a absolute symlink is needed. This isn't the case for the
  vmlinuz file, since it is shipped.
