x86: support XZ-compressed kernel
This integrates the XZ decompression code to the x86 pre-boot code. mkpiggy.c is updated to reserve about 32 KiB more buffer safety margin for kernel decompression. It is done unconditionally for all decompressors to keep the code simpler. The XZ decompressor needs around 30 KiB of heap, so the heap size is increased to 32 KiB on both x86-32 and x86-64. Documentation/x86/boot.txt is updated to list the XZ magic number. With the x86 BCJ filter in XZ, XZ-compressed x86 kernel tends to be a few percent smaller than the equivalent LZMA-compressed kernel. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.
