None of the major distros I tried has the lz4 or lz4c binary available,
and this breaks randconfig builds:

/bin/sh: lz4c: command not found

If:

CONFIG_HAVE_KERNEL_LZ4=y
CONFIG_KERNEL_LZ4=y
CONFIG_RD_LZ4=y
CONFIG_LZ4_DECOMPRESS=y
CONFIG_DECOMPRESS_LZ4=y

If a utility is not widely available yet and if the utility is not in the
kernel proper, could you please at least make sure that randconfig does
not stumble over non-buildable kernels?

Thanks,

Ingo
