Re: initrd compressed format

XZ is only the format which offers the tightest compression today.
There is a header which indicates or implies the compression format.
For instance, gzip is the default for initramfs*.img in Fedora 14.
The format with "no compression" (that is, plain cpio) is also allowed.
