    SubjectRe: [PATCH 00/10] AXFS: Advanced XIP filesystem
    Jared, nice work!

    I've also read your paper from the linux symposium

    A few questions:
    - how does this benchmark compared to cramfs and squashfs in a NAND-only system
    (or is it just not a good plan to use this with NAND-only (of course
    I won't get XIP with NAND, I understand that)
    - would axfs be suitable as a filesystem on a ram disk?

    Background for the last question is that if you do not have the memory
    to retain all pages uncompressed (as you would with ramfs), this could
    be a nice intermediate format.
    Furthermore compared to ramfs, a filesystem on a ramdisk does not need
    the initialisation during startup (decompressing the cpio file,
    creating the files, copying the data), so when it comes to boot times
    a filesystem on a ramdisk (e.g. axfs) could be a better choice.

    Appreciate your feedback.
