snapcraft kernel plugin includes always the uc16 initramfs

Bug Description

snapcraft's kernel plugin downloads the core snap (UC16) to pull the initramfs and include it in the kernel snap, even if the kernel is being built for a UC18 image. At the same time, core18 does not include an initramfs as core16 did, so it is not possible to get the initramfs from it anymore.

A solution needs to be agreed between snapd, snapcraft for this.

As agreed, when foundations produces the central repository to consume the generic initramfs from, we will proceed to consume from there.

We have a uc18 project that will require a customized initramfs. Does the central repository referenced above exist for this yet?
