Ram disk computation based on initrd size

Description

It would be interesting to compute the ramdisk_size parameter based on the real size of the initrd contant, in order to avoid issues when populating it with cryptic messages such as:

Installing additional tools...
Populating / with tar file content...
tar : write error : No space left on device

Also adapting the message to suggest to increase ramdisk size in the mean time would be great.

Also, Mondoarchive can inform the user thet it will need to create a ramdisk of x size and that one will need x amount of ram on the target restore machine to restore and accomodate the restore proccess.
