I am aware that we can give the ramfs source in the usr/Kconfig. But my
question was, does the same ramfs image which I am including in vmlinuz  by
it in the Kconfig,
be also passed explicitly to the kernel if not included into the kernel
i.e. I can build a ramfs image and use it internally to the kernel or
external to the kernel
