Bug#325396: linux-2.6: add an option to decompress after installation

Package: linux-2.6
Severity: wishlist

it would be fine to have an option (e.g in /etc/linux-source.conf) to
decompress the .tar.bz2/.tar.gz in background while executing postinst
(of course defaulting to "no"). I often find myself doing some work on
old /usr/src/linux-source-x.y.z.

thanks in advance,
