Well, if you add stuff to DEFAULT_PACKAGES just because initramfs behaves
differently, who is treating it differently then?

The proper way IMO would be to either have initramfs use DEVICE_PACKAGES as
people would expect or create a separate parameter for _device_ initramfs
packages, which could default to DEVICE_PACKAGES then (so one could still
remove stuff if initramfs size is limited).
But I don't think moving everything to default packages is a good idea, as
it will only work for certain cases/packages, and dealing with "removed"
packages in DEVICE_PACKAGES is less convenient in make menuconfig.
