Bug #7838: Backport r39213 to Ruby 2.0.0 which fixes intermittent test failures
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/7838#change-36212

Author: drbrain (Eric Hodel)

Priority: Normal
Assignee: drbrain (Eric Hodel)
Category: lib
Target version: 2.0.0
ruby -v: -


r39213 sets the encoding of strings returned by Gem.gzip and Gem.gunzip to BINARY.

This fixes intermittent test failures on ruby 2.0.0.

I believe this could cause failures in real code too.
