Well, either I'm doing something idiotic when setting up
overlapping/in-place compression/decompression buffers or the routines
do not work as advertised. In any event, the image is subtly corrupt on
resume using this technique (checksum verified), hence the segfaults.
Please do not use this code on your systems - it may corrupt your file

For now, I will finalize the patch using two buffers, but I'll drop the
number of pages down to 32, so that we use roughly the same amount of
memory as with overlapping/in-place compression/decompression. Slightly
slower than with 64 pages, but still much faster than original code.
