Subject[e2compr PATCH]: announcing beta port to kernel 2.2.18
Dear mailing list members,
I am unable to join the maintainers/developers of the extended 2
compressed filesystem patch at,
so I think you are the best available audience for this announce, and
I hope some of the developers/maintainers of e2compr will be listening

I have uploaded at
a minor modification of the e2compr-0.4.38 kernel patch, adapted to compile
versus the latest 2.2.18 stable kernel. This was needed to allow us to upgrade
to a more recent kernel version in the next DemoLinux (see

It seems to properly operate under reasonable charge for me,
even if once in a while I get a sequence of errors

Whoops: end_buffer_io_async: async io complete on unlocked page

not necessarily when using ext2 compressed filesystems.

Please feel free to use it (at your own risk), test it and report bugs

Notice, though, that I am not applying to become an official maintainer
of the package: I just needed to spend some time to get it almost working
and I wanted to give back the contribution to the community.

Also, I am not currently subscribed to the kernel mailing list, so
please contact me directly by e-mail, for any comments.

Sincerely yours

--Roberto Di Cosmo
