> Subject: [PATCH] staging: zcache: add crypto API support
> This patch allow zcache to use the crypto API for page compression.
> It replaces the direct LZO compress/decompress calls with calls
> into the crypto compression API. The compressor to be used is
> specified in the kernel boot line with the zcache parameter like:
> zcache=lzo or zcache=deflate. If the specified compressor can't
> be loaded, zcache uses lzo as the default compressor.
