Finally, here is a long-overdue upstream-ready --rsyncable
patch for gzip. I've Cc'd Rusty Russel, who is listed as the author.
I'll push this in the next day or so, so any improvements people
can suggest in the mean time would be most welcome.
Most of the changes came from some distro patches
(not sure if it was debian or fedora, since I began this
long ago). I added the test, a few comments and the
commit log.
