Since kernel-2.6.14-1.1637, there has been a long delay during boot
the "Uncompressing..." line. It takes about a minute or so, and judging
from the sound of the fan, it appears to take 100% CPU. Observed on a Compaq
AP250 PIII 866MHz. Earlier kernels did not have this glitch.
a handy trick for finding out where delays occur is to boot
with the options.. 'time initcall_debug'
