At the moment I want to mandate a bzImage for x86, but I'm not certain if that is practical the way we build images for coreboot.
I think I need to ensure that linux builds a bImage. So that you can have an uncompress bzImage. For this embedded case.
bImage would help make mkelfImage's life easier staying forward compatible?
Wow. This project got paged out :(
Always working with a bzImage format would help with being compatible. Having an uncompressed kernel aka a bImage in that format would help having a smaller total size, by not needing to have a decompressor in both the kernel image and in coreboot.
