imgdiff: skip spurious gzip headers in image files

dragon kernel is compressed via lz4 for boot speed and bootloader
support reasons and recent prebuilts happen to include the gzip header
sequence which is causing imgdiff to fail.

Detect a spurious gzip header and treat the section as a normal section.
