-Os is enforced here, based on the test result of decompression time
below, slightly faster than -O2.

But further tests with UA show that using -O2 will be the right choice
especially in the case of the unaligned access enabled and the gap,
few counts in the normal decompression mode is small enough to remove -Os.

Decompression Time(counts)
     Normal    UA enabled
-Os  6717      3447
-O2  6720      2728

Note: ARM v7, Kernel 3.4
      counter freq. = 32768 HZ
      UA(Unaligned Access)
      gcc version 4.6.2
