      zlib: slim down zlib_deflate() workspace when possible · 565d76cb
      Jim Keniston authored
      Instead of always creating a huge (268K) deflate_workspace with the
      maximum compression parameters (windowBits=15, memLevel=8), allow the
      caller to obtain a smaller workspace by specifying smaller parameter
      values.
      
      For example, when capturing oops and panic reports to a medium with
      limited capacity, such as NVRAM, compression may be the only way to
      capture the whole report.  In this case, a small workspace (24K works
      fine) is a win, whether you allocate the workspace when you need it (i.e.,
      during an oops or panic) or at boot time.
      
      I've verified that this patch works with all accepted values of windowBits
      (positive and negative), memLevel, and compression level.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
