Subjectlibz, libbz2, ramfs and cramfs
Hi everyone.

I'm interested in developing a file system which could take features from
ramfs and cramfs so I have a couple of questions which possibly Linus
would answer to.

First, what is the current status of these modules ? Are new features
currently being developed ?

Second, quoting from the jffs2's TODO list :

- fix zlib. It's ugly as hell and there are at least three copies in the
kernel tree

What is the current status of zlib ?

Third, is there any project which tries to implement bzip2 algorithm
inside the kernel ? Does it give better compression ratios on 1-page-long
data ?

Thanks :-)
