[OpenWrt-Devel] [PATCH] mpc85xx: Use gzip compressed kernel on HiveAP-330

After commit 1e41de2f48 ("mpc85xx: convert TL-WDR4900 v1 to simpleImage")
XZ compression of zImage was enabled. This change exposed a problem with
the HiveAP-330 images, which was fixed by foregoing the compression on
the kernel altogether with commit 98089bb8ba8
("mpc85xx: Use uncompressed kernel on the HiveAP-330").

This patch adds back the gzip compression of the kernel image by
utilizing the generic OpenWRT uImage method instead of relying on
the PowerPC bootwrapper script that did it previously.
