Sorry for the confusing typos:

I meant to say that this (setup_data-based cc blob for decompressed kernel)
*isn't* a critical thing to support right now, and disabling that boot
path is certainly an option if that ends up being necessary.

But I do think the boot/compressed issue with how it doesn't map setup_data
entries into identity map should be fixed either way, as it seems like a
latent issue that snp_init() just happens to be the first to trigger.
