When using an initramfs, on the first-pass build, we create a dummy cpio
so that the build succeeeds. The real cpio will come later, and we'll do
a second-pass build to use the actual cpio.
However, when we touch that dummy cpio, the images/ directory may not
yet exist, since commit d0f4f95e39 (Makefile: rework main directory
creation logic) removed its creation at the begining of the build, to
only at the moment we need it, i.e. during the *_INSTALL_IMAGES_CMDS
However, the linux build is not a _INSTALL_IMAGES_CMDS step, so there is
no guarantee that images/ already exist at that time.
Fix that by explicitly creating images/ before touching the dummy cpio.
