I had some trouble with this too: the kernel does not get booted because
the loader reports 'unknown compressed format'.
The solution I found (through luck) was to strip the kernel image
before zipping it.
Then later I found the unix command quickstrip(1) that seems to
be designed to do the kernel stripping. I haven't tried yet, but
I suppose the loader can't handle the large symbol tables associated
to a kernel with debug info.
*perhaps* this sould be stressed somewhere.
