Some new findings now. It turned out that I actually used pigz instead
of gzip. It was not directly clear, because I had PATH variable
prepended with a directory containing "gzip -> /usr/bin/pigz". I have
set this up ~3 years ago and totally forgot about that. Sorry for
misleading that gzip version / patch could be the reason of wrong hash
in my case.

I need to really go through all the patches that got applied to
