Subject: [PATCHv2 1/3] x86: use ELF format in compressed images.
Date: Wed,  6 Feb 2008 21:00:38 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1202331640-15610-2-git-send-email-ijc@hellion.org.uk> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1202331640-15610-1-git-send-email-ijc@hellion.org.uk>

This allows other boot loaders such as the Xen domain builder the
opportunity to extract the ELF file.
