initramfs-tools 0.133 release

Ben Hutchings-3
This release fixes a number of bugs reported to Debian, none of them
particularly severe.  It addresses many errors and warnings emitted by
the static checker shellcheck, thanks to Benjamin Drung.

mkinitramfs now uses pigz as a substitute for gzip if it's installed,
and initramfs-tools-core recommends it.  The man page synopses and
usage messages have been made more consistent, and all commands now
support the --help option.  The README has been updated for the first
time in 13 years.

Possible breaking changes:
- The build process now includes running shellcheck over all shell
  scripts.  Downstream packagers that change or add to the scripts may
  need to update their changes or disable this check.
- The update-initramfs -y option has been removed
- lsinitramfs -l (with no filename) is now an error
- The get_fstype function is now silent on failure
- The render function has been removed
- Checks for very old kernel (< 2.6.38) and dpkg (< 1.14.17) versions
  have been removed
