    Attached is the kernel module (compress-test) to test this LZO code.
    Just compile this module against 2.6.22-rc2 with this LZO patch. Then
    testing can be done as:
    1- Mount DebugFS somewhere e.g:
    mkdir /debug; mount -t debugfs debugfs /debug
    2- Load the module and do:
    cat /path/to/some_file > /debug/compress_test/compress
    (/var/log/messages should show that compression was successful)
    3- Then decompress this file as:
    cat /debug/compress_test/decompress > /tmp/t
    (/var/log/messages should show that decompression was successful)
    4- For extra verification do:
    diff /tmp/t /path/to/some_file -- O/P must be empty
