[master] Problematic patch I'm not sure we want to apply

This patch adds one more step to LiveCD installations -- generating new initrd
after the installation. With the DracutHostOnly feature [1] dracut now includes
only one keymap to the initrd image which makes the vconsole.keymap boot option
not working. Users need the keymap they used in the installation in the initrd,
especially when they use LUKS.

However, to save 3 MB (summed size of all keymaps) in the initrd size, all live
installations would generate initrd twice -- when the kernel package is
installed and at the end of the installation.

  Regenerate initrd on live installations (#994180)
