I don't think it is reasonable to disable target FIT image install just 
because the user has enabled initramfs target generation. Wouldn't it be nicer 
to remove the /boot directory from the generated .cpio image? If this is too 
hard to do, I suggest to add a comment explaining this limitation to be 
displayed when BR2_TARGET_ROOTFS_INITRAMFS is enabled.

Thanks for working on this,
