    Subject[GIT PULL v2] Update LZO compression
    Hi all,

    as suggested on the mailing list I have converted the updated LZO
    code into git, so please pull my "lzo-update" branch from

    git:// lzo-update

    You can browse the branch at

    I'd ask some official kernel maintainer for review and to push this into
    linux-next so that it will hopefully land in the 3.7 release.

    Share and enjoy,

    access => significant speed increase on ARM ]
