initramfs: clean old path before creating a hardlink

sys_link() can fail due to the new path already existing.  This case
ofen occurs when we use a concated initrd, for example:

1) prepare a basic rootfs, it contains a regular files rc.local
lizhijian@:~/yocto-tiny-i386-2016-04-22$ cat etc/rc.local
 #!/bin/sh
 echo "Running /etc/rc.local..."
yocto-tiny-i386-2016-04-22$ find . | sed 's,^\./,,' | cpio -o -H newc | gzip -n -9 >../rootfs.cgz

2) create a extra initrd which also includes a etc/rc.local
lizhijian@:~/lkp-x86_64/etc$ echo "append initrd" >rc.local
lizhijian@:~/lkp/lkp-x86_64/etc$ cat rc.local
append initrd
lizhijian@:~/lkp/lkp-x86_64/etc$ ln rc.local rc.local.hardlink
append initrd
lizhijian@:~/lkp/lkp-x86_64/etc$ stat rc.local rc.local.hardlink

lizhijian@:~/lkp/lkp-x86_64$ find . | sed 's,^\./,,' | cpio -o -H newc | gzip -n -9 >../rc-local.cgz
lizhijian@:~/lkp/lkp-x86_64$ gzip -dc ../rc-local.cgz | cpio -t
.
etc
etc/rc.local.hardlink <<< it will be extracted first at this initrd
etc/rc.local

3) concate 2 initrds and boot
lizhijian@:~/lkp$ cat rootfs.cgz rc-local.cgz >concate-initrd.cgz
lizhijian@:~/lkp$ qemu-system-x86_64 -nographic -enable-kvm -cpu host -smp 1 -m 1024 -kernel ~/lkp/linux/arch/x86/boot/bzImage -append "console=ttyS0 earlyprint=ttyS0 ignore_loglevel" -initrd ./concate-initr.cgz -serial stdio -nodefaults

In this case, sys_link(2) will fail and return -EEXIST, so we can only get
the rc.local at rootfs.cgz instead of rc-local.cgz
