Subject[PATCH] Fix flags for initramfs LZ4 compression
LZ4 as implemented in the kernel differs from the default method now
used by the reference implementation of LZ4. Until the in-kernel method
is updated to support the new default, passing the legacy flag (-l) to
the compressor is necessary. Without this flag the kernel-generated,
LZ4-compressed initramfs is junk.
