bzip2 is either slower or larger than every other supported algorithm,
according to benchmarks at [0]. It is far slower to decompress than any
other algorithm, and still larger than lzma, xz, and zstd.

I would keep the magic number, and just tell that it is not supported by 
newer kernels anymore if at all. It's just handy to be able to look into 
the most recent documentation and see what the values are for. If you 
look at an older image and don't find the magic number my first impulse 
would not be to look at older versions of the documentation for things 
that were removed.

Maybe something like:

"Formerly supported was also bzip2 (magic number 42 5A)."
