[coreboot] AMD VSA binary corrupt?

I believe this was covered before we moved the AMD VSA binary source code
over to the current location. It turns out that despite the presence of a gz
prefix after the file type, it was placed there as a plain binary blob.
Rename it to the name without the .gz at the end and then gzip -9 (probably)
back and then repeat your steps.

Of course this is only my opinion. It may not be valid.

I'm trying to download the latest AMD Geode LX VSA from

but it seems, the file is corrupted:

$ gunzip amd_vsa_lx_1.01.bin.gz
gzip: amd_vsa_lx_1.01.bin.gz: not in gzip format

Any hint what to do?
