Note that the LZ4 signature is different than that of modern LZ4 as we
use the "legacy" format which suffers from some downsides like inability
to disable compression.

The first time this was sent I managed to screw up both the subject and
scissors line, so it's likely whatever filter you're using didn't notice
the patch inside a thread.

ZSTD compression for vmlinux is not yet in, but being able to unpack it
can't hurt.  LZ4 is in for quite a while.

Sorry for the delay.
