Subject[PATCH 09/33] kbuild: add support for squashing uid/gid in gen_initramfs_list.sh
Date
From: Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>

Sometimes it is useful to squash all uid's/gid's to 0:0 regardless of
current owner. For example, in build systems that get run as arbitrary
users (uClinux-dist). This adds a special "squash" keyword so you can do
'-g squash -u squash' and have ownership squashed to root.
