    Exactly my question, as that's why the Crypto API was extended with
    support for partial (de)compression in the first place ;-)

    In addition, using the Crypto API has the advantage that Squashfs will
    use hardware decompression if/when available.

    IIRC, Felix Fietkau added support for that for OpenWRT...

    In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
    when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
