    With what algo and what kernel size ?
    With the close-source upx-1.93 linked with the NRV compression, I often
    observe an average 15-20% gain on the bzImage size if it does not embed
    an initramfs. I remember that the UCL library was not as good as the NRV,
    so I've stopped using it a long time ago.
