From: Albin Tonnerre <albin.tonnerre <at> free-electrons.com>
Subject: [PATCH] ARM: Add support for LZMA-compressed kernel images
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Friday 20th November 2009 15:02:03 UTC (over 7 years ago)
This patch allows using a kernel image compressed with LZMA on ARM,
using the support for multiple decompressors introduced in the LZO
support patch.
Extracting the image is fairly slow, but it might be useful on machines
with a very limited amount of storage.
