Re: Kernel using LZMA compression



> I am reading between the lines here (I have never looked at this stuff in Xen) but I would assume it's for the reason given above. The kernel's own decompression routines must run very early on in the boot process - well before the first line of C code runs and while the CPU (on x86) is still running in legacy real addressing mode (right after the handover from the bootloader and relocation of the kernel image).

Ok. Sounds plausible. How is it to seperate the routines? Can they
brought from "legacy mode" to "real mode"?
