Subject[PATCHv2] staging: zcache: crypto API support
Date
This patch allow zcache to use the crypto API for page compression.
It replaces the direct LZO compress/decompress calls with calls
into the crypto compression API. The compressor to be used is
specified in the kernel boot line with the zcache parameter like:
zcache=lzo or zcache=deflate. If the specified compressor can't
be loaded, zcache uses lzo as the default compressor.

compression and an in-kernel implementation of transcendent
memory to store clean page cache pages and swap in RAM,
providing a noticeable reduction in disk I/O.
