LZO as compression algorithm for Btrfs. Finally!
When I first saw news about compressed filesystem in Btrfs and I read it was done with the zlib the first thing I thought was: Why the hell zlib and not LZO? It doesn't make any sense for most uses of a filesystem, except on some really big fat servers. But LZO makes sense everywhere. It's waaay faster and it's compression ratio is very good.
Phoronix should totally bench and compare the Btrfs mount options now!
Some tests from the developer (Li Zefan) follow:
