Attached patch defines kiwi option --gzip-cmd to pigz if package
available in buildroot. Otherwise gzip will be used (by default).

pigz, which stands for parallel implementation of gzip, is a fully
functional replacement for gzip that exploits multiple processors and
multiple cores to the hilt when compressing data.

My experience with pigz is ~6Min (gzip) vs ~2Min with pigz.

Comments are welcome.
