That's an already compressed file!  Please see my posts in the thread.
We should be testing compression on the data we are actually

That's what I'm getting with default compression settings:

44372 image
31195 image.lzo
24321 image.gz
24130 image.bz2
21858 image.lzma

The image was made by adding fopen(), fwrite() and fclose() before
lzo1x_999_compress() in grub-mkimage.c, compiling, installing GRUB and
running "grub-install /dev/sda"

The image is attached.
