kernel.org stops using bz2

Many upstream provides their source as tar.xz format, and kernel.org also throw bz2 away - "Happy new year and good-bye bzip2".

Debian package (dpkg-deb) uses xz as default since 1.17.0 as I mentioned. If your package uses bz2, now it's a time to switch. And maybe it's good to ask upstream to switch from bzip2 to xz, too.
