Description

Update to 4.9.23, improve initramfs

The initrd is now modified to:

  • Use faster lz4 decompression
  • Use reproducible images
  • Include AMD early boot code
  • Enable early bootcode loading
  • Strip all files
  • Prelink binaries to speed up linker during boot

Net result on a fast Broadwell/SSD system is a 250ms or so reduction in
overall boot time, at the cost of 5MB of disk space. For slower systems
this will show a more significant benefit.
