SubjectRe: [PATCH 00/10] AXFS: Advanced XIP filesystem

Maybe AXIPFS would be the close alternative.

One question on the use-case profiling and subsequent image rebuild:

What if the use-case did not cover all cases of XIP use?

If a compressed page is attempted to be executed, will the filesystem
fall back to decompression to RAM and execution from RAM, or will this
result in a faulty system?

The design choices look real good. Congrats on the achievement.

Regards,
