Thank you.

Could you take this version of "1/3 x86: use ELF format in compressed
images" instead? It contains a slightly improved version of the doc
section making it clear that ELF is used for the uncompressed data. It
also renames the field to just payload_{offset,length} so as to not rule
out the possibility of uncompressed payloads.

Subject: [PATCH] x86: use ELF format in compressed images.
This allows other boot loaders such as the Xen domain builder the
opportunity to extract the ELF file.
