Subject[PATCH v4 1/4] KEYS: Insert incompressible bytes to reserve space in bzImage
Date
Include a random filled binary in vmlinux at the space reserved with
CONFIG_SYSTEM_EXTRA_CERTIFICATE. This results in an uncompressed reserved
area inside the bzImage as well, so that it can be replaced with an actual
certificate later (after the bzImage is distributed).

The bzImage contains a stripped ELF file with one section containing the
compressed vmlinux. If the reserved space is initially filled with zeros,
certificate insertion will cause a size increase in the compressed vmlinux.
In that case, reconstructing the bzImage would require relocation. To avoid
this situation, the reserved space is initially filled with random bytes.
Since a certificate contains some compressible bytes, after insertion the
vmlinux will hopefully be compressed to a smaller size.
