Hi Chris and Deepak,

in Ubifs, I have tried unsetting the compression xattr on files, but
reads were equally slow so I guess the contents weren't actually
uncompressed. Even tried dd'ing to an empty existing file without the
c attribute, but the result was the same. Any idea what I'm doing

Chris, I think you worked on improving the control of on-the-fly
compression in jffs2, can we control it using the c attribute as in
