initramfs-tools should depend on kmod instead of module-init-tools

Bug Description

module-init-tools is a transitional dummy package to transition to kmod, so initramfs-tools shouldn't depend on it.

It should directly depend on kmod instead. This wouldn't bring in any new packages or require any code changes, because initramfs-tools already indirectly depends on kmod.
