This patch introduced a new type of image entitled gzip, providing
support for gzip compressed boot images. After selected and exec-ed, the
image will be uncompressed into a new one with the same name and
cmdline, which immediately relpaces the original one and get exec-ed.

This patch is based on Petr Borsodi's work in pr #97
