Subject[PATCH] scripts: add extract-vmlinux
Date
This script can be used to extract vmlinux from a compressed
kernel image (bzImage, etc..). It's inspired from (a subset of)
extract-ikconfig.

I don't know if this scripts really have this place in the kernel
tree, but it's something a lot of people have been looking for (mainly
people with xen < 4 that doesn't support bzImages at all).
