maintainer-scripts/gcc_release: compress xz in parallel
1. This should speed up decompression for folks, as parallel xz
creates a different archive which can be decompressed in parallel.
Note that this different method is enabled by default in a new
xz release coming shortly anyway (>= 5.3.3_alpha1).
I build GCC regularly from the weekly snapshots
and so the decompression time adds up.
2. It should speed up compression on the webserver a bit.
Note that -T0 won't be the default in the new xz release,
only the parallel compression mode (which enables parallel
-T0 detects the number of cores available.
So, if a different number of threads is preferred, it's fine
to set e.g. -T2, etc.
