Subject[PATCH 04/17] x86: Remove support for BZIP2 and LZMA compressed kernel
While bzip2 used to be good in its heyday, it's been drastically eclipsed
by newer algorithms. In no case it's a rational choice anymore -- at any
point of the size-to-compression curve, there's something much better.
As we control the build process, any .configs that still select it will
harmlessly be adjusted, thus there's no risk of breakage.

Bare lzma is redundant with xz, lacks some improvements, and uses its own
copy of code instead using the common library.
