SubjectRe: [Patch] Read CONFIG_RD_ variables for initramfs compression

Hello Simon, Andrew

I'v pushed a patch from Mr Hristo to the same effect. I guess it's still in
the queue. I haven't received any review for it yet. (...Andrew?)

That is because, when multiple options are set, CONFIG_RD_GZIP is checked
last in the usr/Makefile.
# Gzip
suffix_$(CONFIG_RD_GZIP) = .gz

Hope it helps.
