[RFC] zlib crypto module

From:  Geert Uytterhoeven <>
Subject:  [patch 0/3] [RFC] zlib crypto module
Date:  Fri, 29 Aug 2008 15:41:58 +0200
Message-ID:  <>
Archive-link:  Article

These patches add a (de)compression module for the "zlib" format using the
crypto API:
  [1] crypto: Add a zlib crypto module
  [2] tcrypt: Add a self test for the zlib crypto module
  [3] squashfs: Switch from zlib/inflate to "zlib" crypto module

The last patch is a proof-of-concept to make SquashFS 3.4 use this new zlib
crypto module. This makes it easier to e.g. change the decompression algorithm
in SquashFS or to make use of a hardware-accelerated zlib crypto module.

It can be extended to other compressed file systems, like e.g. AxFS and CRAMFS.

All comments are welcome. Thanks!

With kind regards,
