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,

[ Changes in v2: Optimize code for CPUs with inefficient unaligned
access => significant speed increase on ARM ]
