Hi all,

I finally have prepared a small package that updates the LZO version
in the Linux kernel. Please get it from:

As stated in the README this version is significantly faster (typically more
than 2 times faster!) than the current version, has been thoroughly tested on
x86_64/i386/powerpc platforms and is intended to get included into the
official Linux 3.6 or 3.7 release.

I encourage all compression users to test and benchmark this new version,
and I also would ask some official LZO maintainer to convert the updated
source files into a GIT commit and possibly push it to Linus or linux-next.

Share and enjoy,
