Hmm, I cannot test it locally. My Ubuntu 18.10 carries gzip 1.6, which
doesn't emit such a warning.

Could you please check, whether "gzip -q ..." suppresses such a warning
for you? I would add "-q" then for the gzip calls inside Tramp.

You could also manipulate Tramp and test it. Tweak the constant
tramp-inline-compress-commands accordingly.

Best regards, Michael.
