Add Hyper-V paravirtualised device drivers to the initramfs to allow

Too optimistic in thinking that the DRM driver will always be loaded
in time for scripts/init-top/framebuffer to load; some users find that
vesafb gets loaded first anyway, scrambling their console state in the
initramfs. Add a one-second sleep before checking if we should fall back
to vesafb, which seems to be long enough to work around this.
LP: #869119.

When falling back to vesafb, suppress stderr output from modprobe;
otherwise in some cases we'll get error output on a console that was
nicely blank up to a week ago. Failing to load vesafb is usually not an
error in any case.

give a better comment to explain what we're doing here, so future developers
can track it down and smack me if needed

scripts/init-top/framebuffer: fall back to vesafb if no other
framebuffer is found/configured, so we can take full advantage of the
grub gfxpayload handoff support. This ensures we get a clean
framebuffer-based plymouth screen even when using binary video drivers.
LP: #864149, LP: #563878, LP: #771905.
