This is a must never happen. If the lar tool ever creates this, it has
seriously screwed up. We need to make sure the lar tool can not set
both compression and XIP.
LAR doesn't has a field for telling that an entry will be XIP or not.
Whether we run it in place or move it is only our _runtime_ decision,
thus this check is needed.
If you mean that the LAR tool should check for mandatory names (like
initram) which can't be compressed, well, that is handled in the
makefiles (see nocompress:normal/initram).
I think such an extra check wouldn't hurt (maybe if you care about
space, you could merge some checks to print only one message).
