So it's relocating the compressed kernel and decompressor from
0x80A000C0-0x8112BA40 to 0x8152C700-0x81C58080 and then failing.
Does the QEMU version also do similar?

On the off-hand, I'm not sure why it should fail. I assume that
you've tried the other decompressors and they work fine on the
same setups?

RMK's Patch system:
FTTP is here! 40Mbps down 10Mbps up. Decent connectivity at last!
