FS#64 - initramfs: resolving dns problems (bad address)

Since we are adding all needed files to get dns resolved, probably we can think about this and remove it or fix it adding libc and ld-linux-armhf files.

# ping localhost
ping: bad address

Final initramfs size will grow 1M. Removing libnss and libresolv files won't make it decrease too much. Could this be interesting for a debugging initramfs and not for a media installer?

Small patch to add those files:
diff –git a/Makefile b/Makefile

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  

We can chroot the rootfs and get full network support inside it. At the moment we can keep initrd/initramfs smaller without these files.
