Remove final traces of long-deprecated "ramdisk" kernel parm
Since the "ramdisk" kernel parameter has been officially deprecated since at least 2.6.18, might as well finally get rid of it. Signed-off-by: Robert P. J.

The new RAM disk also has the ability to load compressed RAM disk images,
allowing one to squeeze more programs onto an average installation or
rescue floppy disk.
