anybody there being interested in having bzip2 compression in zfs-fuse ? (maybe for demonstration, academical purpose or just for fun)
i was curious how this could be done and i have taken a look at lzo patch and into bzip2 sources and programming manual.
from my programming-rookie perspective, it looks sort of straightforward to implement bzip2 compression for zfs-fuse. including a handful of files into the build process and then use utility functions BZ2_bzBuffToBuffCompress and BZ2_bzBuffToBuffDecompress appropriately.
maybe some more skilled person can tell if this is correct ?
unfortunately, this is not a matter of "hack this in one evening" project for me, but maybe there are others interested in this !?
i have made a stripped archive containing that what`s absolutely necessary from my point of view:
apparently codesize seems to be similar to minilzo.
