That appears to be a regular glibc (or at least the size of the glibc
is roughly consistent with what I'd expect).

We could go this route, but with recent changes to qemu we are very
limited in the size of the initrd[1].  I think uncompressing the small
number of *.ko.gz files is the easier option right now ...
