CONFIG_MODULE_COMPRESS: Compress modules on installation

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_MODULE_COMPRESS:

Help text

Compresses kernel modules when 'make modules_install' is run; gzip or xz depending on "Compression algorithm" below.

module-init-tools MAY support gzip, and kmod MAY support gzip and xz.

Out-of-tree kernel modules installed using Kbuild will also be compressed upon installation.

Note: for modules inside an initrd or initramfs, it's more efficient to compress the whole initrd or initramfs instead.

Note: This is fully compatible with signed modules.

If in doubt, say N.
