Well, that's certainly true, isn't it? :-)

(technical details: we have three payload parsers - ELF, bzImage and
special-Tianocore, of which the ELF parser is the first. If it fails, it
whines a bit on the console, then the others get a chance).

Using a bzImage is the most recently tested approach to making a payload
out of a linux kernel, so this is the way to go.
