we had quite some complaints about the size of the initrd, etc.
The size of the "host only" initrd can be reduced significantly by
using --xz instead of the default gzip compression..but then people
may complain about compression speed -_-.
It's probably a reasonable trade-off, especially for large initrds. Even
for relatively tiny initrds, using xz gives a decent saving:
Compr Size Time
gzip 5379419 10s
xz 3936824 18s
8s extra runtime for a 1.4Mb reduction.
