It was indirectly connected to the new feature. Since we're using the
same compression algorithm as we use for CONFIG_COMPRESS I switched
things so that they share code - 
... and tested on a system with CONFIG_COMPRESS disabled.

The bug was that nrv2b puts the length of the decompressed file in the
first 4 bytes of the result file. unrv2b() skips those. And so does
copy_and_run.c in the assembler part which I missed.

I fixed it in 2291 though.
