[PATCH] arm: Add support for ZSTD compressed kernel

Good Evening,

I had attempted to get this working as well, but have run into
difficulties with both my implementation and yours as well.
My implementation was almost the same as yours, with the exception of
also changing:
@@ -303,7 +305,7 @@ restart: adr r0, LC1

/* malloc space is above the relocated stack (64k max) */
- add r10, sp, #0x10000
+ add r10, sp, #0x30000
* With ZBOOT_ROM the bss/stack is non relocatable,

On QEMU this implementation works fine.
However on bare metal tegra30, I get the following error:

Jumping to kernel at:4861 ms

Uncompressing Linux...

ZSTD-compressed dstSize is too small

-- System halted

The only difference between the bare metal test and the qemu test is
the zImage with appended dtb is packaged in the android boot format
for the bare metal test.
Otherwise it's exactly the same file.

I had to modify the original zstd error message because it grouped
several errors together.
Here is my patch for that:
