Subject: [PATCH 0/5] pstore: Use zstd directly by default for compression


Okay, here is a very lightly tested version of using zstd directly, which
should save 128KB per CPU compare to using crypto API. This leaves the
crypto API available, though, if someone wants to use it instead. Even
supporting both, this is a net reduction in code, due to dropping all
the zbufsize logic.

How does this look?


Kees Cook (5):
  pstore: Remove worse-case compression size logic
  pstore: Allow for arbitrary compression algorithm
  pstore: Use size_t for compress/decompression type widths
  pstore: Refactor compression initialization
  pstore: Use zstd directly by default for compression
