some proposals regarding the wording below..

What about making this explain things a bit more, e.g. something like

Linux kernel boot failure: The boot image does not contain all necessary
components (like the entry point and decompressor). The plain vmlinux ELF
file no longer carries all necessary parts for starting up. Please use
bzImage or arch/s390/boot/compressed/vmlinux.
