Hrm... I guess this is sufficient.  Since we'll shortly be blowing
away the state anyway, the lack of call to inflateEnd doesn't really
matter.  Originally I was going to make this function call fatal() if
the destination didn't have enough space to contain the decompressed
tail of the image, but obviously I decided aginst that.

But, if you're going to do this, you might as well get rid of
gunzip_finish() entirely, and have the callers using gunzip_partial
