linux-libre: Enable module compression.
This commit enables GZIP compression for linux-libre kernel modules, reducing the size of linux-libre by 63% (165MB). The initrd modules are kept uncompressed as the initrd is already compressed as a whole. The linux-libre kernel also supports XZ compression, but as Guix does not have any available bindings for now, and the compression time is far more significant, GZIP seems to be a better option. * gnu/packages/aux-files/linux-libre/5.4-arm.conf: Enable GZ compression. * gnu/packages/aux-files/linux-libre/5.4-arm64.conf: Ditto. * gnu/packages/aux-files/linux-libre/5.4-i686.conf: Ditto. * gnu/packages/aux-files/linux-libre/5.4-x86_64.conf: Ditto. * gnu/build/linux-modules.scm (modinfo-section-contents): Use 'call-with-gzip-input-port' to read from a module file using '.gz' extension, (strip-extension): new procedure, (dot-ko): adapt to support compression, (ensure-dot-ko): ditto, (file-name->module-name): ditto, (find-module-file): ditto, (load-linux-module*): ditto, (module-name->file-name/guess): ditto, (module-name-lookup): ditto, (write-module-name-database): ditto, (write-module-alias-database): ditto, (write-module-device-database): ditto. * gnu/system/linux-initrd.scm (flat-linux-module-directory): Make sure that zlib bindings are available because they may be used in 'write-module-device-database'. Also make sure that the initrd only contains uncompressed module files.
