    This patch extends Linux RISC-V build system to build and install:
    Image - Flat uncompressed kernel image
    Image.gz - Flat and GZip compressed kernel image
    
    Quiet a few bootloaders (such as Uboot, UEFI, etc) are capable of
    booting flat and compressed kernel images. In case of Uboot, booting
    Image or Image.gz is achieved using bootm command.
    
    The flat and uncompressed kernel image (i.e. Image) is very useful
    in pre-silicon developent and testing because we can create back-door
    HEX files for RAM on FPGAs from Image.
