So... for a selected kernel version of a particular size, can we please

we can see whether it's worth updating the LZO code or replacing the
LZO code with LZ4?
How could it be questionable that it's worth updating the LZO code?
Please read the comments against the previous posting of these patches
where I first stated this argument - and with agreement from those
following the thread. The thread started on 26 Jan 2013. Thanks.

I did not and do not see significant value in
adding LZ4 given Markus' LZO improvements.

I asked about LZO.

Why would the LZO code not be updated?

The new LZO code is faster than ever and it's
a standalone improvement.

Markus has posted what seems a clean git pull
request. It was not cc'd to arm or linux-arch.
