Sorry for creating new record, but I was unable to change #35238 status.


Current implementation fails when mixing .gz and .cpio initrd images. 
Test case:
initrd img1.cpio.gz img2.cpio
leads to wrong result.

.cpio header must be aligned on 4-byte boundary, while .gz size is not
required to be multiple of 4.

Please add padding by zeroes to align initrd size on 4-byte boundary. See
format specification here:
