Or you would like to pass some info from the compressed kernel to kernel
proper?

For example, something like the passing in add_e820ext() and the consumtion
in parse_setup_data():

switch (data_type) {
case SETUP_E820_EXT:
e820__memory_setup_extended(pa_data, data_len);

So info you need for your padding gets collected in
arch/x86/boot/compressed/acpitb.c and you consume it in
kernel_randomize_memory()?

Would that work?
