Subject: How to disable Linux kernel self-extraction (KERNEL_GZIP, KERNEL_BZIP2, …)?

Dear Linux folks,


I try to decrease boot time, and my system has an SSD and enough space, 
so loading 18 instead of 12 MB doesn’t make a difference, but the 
self-extraction is noticeable. So, I like to disable it.

 From `init/Kconfig`:

> The linux kernel is a kind of self-extracting executable.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a way to disable it. Should an option 
`KERNEL_NONE` be added?


Kind regards,

Paul
