initramfs: restore default compression behavior
Even though INITRAMFS_SOURCE kconfig option isn't set in most of defconfigs it is used (set) extensively by various build systems. Commit f26661e12765 ("initramfs: make initramfs compression choice non-optional") has changed default compression mode. Previously we compress initramfs using available compression algorithm. Now we don't use any compression at all by default. It significantly increases the image size in case of build system chooses embedded initramfs. Initially I faced with this issue while using buildroot. As of today it's not possible to set preferred compression mode in target defconfig as this option depends on INITRAMFS_SOURCE being set. Modification of all build systems either doesn't look like good option. Let's instead rewrite initramfs compression mode choices list the way that "INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_NONE" will be the last option in the list. In that case it will be chosen only if all other options (which implements any compression) are not available.
