10kb off the xz compressed image! Woohoo!

Series merged to master as of 065877fc59de64ae22b4677667ce42db609ffdf5.

Just before the --orphan-handling=warn patch, I merged in a bump to the
toolchain we were using on the centos7 docker image. It's now GCC 8.1
(latest crosstool builds -
https://mirrors.edge.kernel.org/pub/tools/crosstool/ ).

I heard zero people advocating for ancient GCC (granted, I asked the
people in my house, which at the time was me) :)
