bzip2/lzma: remove nasty uncompressed size hack in pre-boot environment

decompress_bunzip2 and decompress_unlzma have a nasty hack that subtracts
4 from the input length if being called in the pre-boot environment.

This is a nasty hack because it relies on the fact that flush = NULL only
when called from the pre-boot environment (i.e.
arch/x86/boot/compressed/misc.c).  initramfs.c/do_mounts_rd.c pass in a
flush buffer (flush != NULL).

This hack prevents the decompressors from being used with flush = NULL by
other callers unless knowledge of the hack is propagated to them.

This patch removes the hack by making decompress (called only from the
pre-boot environment) a wrapper function that subtracts 4 from the input
length before calling the decompressor.
