Subject[PATCH 0/3] Update LZ4 compressor module
Date

This patchset is for updating the LZ4 compression module to a version based
on LZ4 v1.7.2 allowing to use the fast compression algorithm aka LZ4 fast
which provides an "acceleration" parameter as a tradeoff between
compression ratio and compression speed.

We will use LZ4 fast in order to support compression in lustre. LZ4 fast empowers
us to do client-side as well as server-side compression/decompression while
being able to provide appropriate parameters to enable users to tune lustre's
behaviour to obtain the best performance/compression/etc. on their behalf
(adapative compression).

Also, it will be useful for other users of LZ4 compression,
as with LZ4 fast it is possible to enable applications to use fast and/or high
compression depending of the usecase. E.g. a developer can use very
high compression (low acceleration) for sending data over a network with
limited rate of transmission or he trades the compression ratio for higher
compression speed.

----------------|--------------|----------------|----------
memcpy | 4200 MB/s | 4200 MB/s | 1.000
LZ4 fast 50 | 1080 MB/s | 2650 MB/s | 1.375
LZ4 fast 17 | 680 MB/s | 2220 MB/s | 1.607
LZ4 fast 5 | 475 MB/s | 1920 MB/s | 1.886
LZ4 default | 385 MB/s | 1850 MB/s | 2.101
