      lib/decompressors: use real out buf size for gunzip with kernel · 2d3862d2

      When loading x86 64bit kernel above 4GiB with patched grub2, got kernel
      gunzip error.

      the new buffer is at 0x46fe000000ULL, decompressor_gzip is using
      0xffffffb901ffffff as out_len.  gunzip in lib/zlib_inflate/inflate.c cap
      that len to 0x01ffffff and decompress fails later.
      We could hit this problem with crashkernel booting that uses kexec loading
      kernel above 4GiB.
      We have decompress_* support:
          1. inbuf[]/outbuf[] for kernel preboot.
          2. inbuf[]/flush() for initramfs
          3. fill()/flush() for initrd.
      This bug only affect kernel preboot path that use outbuf[].
      Add __decompress and take real out_buf_len for gunzip instead of guessing
      wrong buf size.
      Fixes: 1431574a (lib/decompressors: fix "no limit" output buffer length)

      initramfs: support initramfs that is bigger than 2GiB · d97b07c5
      Yinghai Lu authored
      Now with 64bit bzImage and kexec tools, we support ramdisk that size is
      bigger than 2g, as we could put it above 4G.
      Found compressed initramfs image could not be decompressed properly.  It
      turns out that image length is int during decompress detection, and it
      will become < 0 when length is more than 2G.  Furthermore, during
      decompressing len as int is used for inbuf count, that has problem too.
      Change len to long, that should be ok as on 32 bit platform long is
      Tested with following compressed initramfs image as root with kexec.
      	gzip, bzip2, xz, lzma, lzop, lz4.
      run time for populate_rootfs():

      kmemtrace, kbuild: fix slab.h dependency problem in lib/decompress_bunzip2.c · ba56617e
      Pekka Enberg authored
      Impact: cleanup
      lib/decompress_bunzip2.c depends on slab.h without including it:

      It gets included implicitly currently - but this will not be the
      case with upcoming kmemtrace changes.

      bzip2/lzma: library support for gzip, bzip2 and lzma decompression · bc22c17e
      Alain Knaff authored
      Impact: Replaces inflate.c with a wrapper around zlib_inflate; new library code
      This is the first part of the bzip2/lzma patch
      The bzip patch is based on an idea by Christian Ludwig, includes support for
      compressing the kernel with bzip2 or lzma rather than gzip. Both
      compressors give smaller sizes than gzip.  Lzma's decompresses faster
      than bzip2.
      It also supports ramdisks and initramfs' compressed using these two
      The functionality has been successfully used for a couple of years by
      the udpcast project
      This version applies to "tip" kernel 2.6.28
      This part contains:
      - changed inflate.c to accomodate rest of patch
      - implementation of bzip2 compression (not used at this stage yet)
      - implementation of lzma compression (not used at this stage yet)
      - Makefile routines to support bzip2 and lzma kernel compression
