LZMA compressed payloads to not have a magic number, all you can do is
check if the header parameters are in a reasonable range. Sorry.
This problem fortunately does not exist in v3 because LAR does the
compression itself and notes the compression type in th header.
I ran into this runtime error as well today.
Please find a patch attached that makes coreboot a bit smarter in dealing
with this situation, and avoids the fatal runtime error.
