Decompressors: fix callback-to-callback mode in decompress_unlzo.c
Callback-to-callback decompression mode is used for initrd (not initramfs). The LZO wrapper is broken for this use case for two reasons: - The argument validation is needlessly too strict by requiring that "posp" is non-NULL when "fill" is non-NULL. - The buffer handling code didn't work at all for this use case. I tested with LZO-compressed kernel, initramfs, initrd, and corrupt (truncated) initramfs and initrd images. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <> Cc: "H.
