I have attached a patch for you to look at. It isn't ready to be
applied, but I have some questions.
1) Using Kmalloc instead of xv if size > PAGE_SIZE-512
This is against compcache.c. Currently it does not even try to support
64bit or kfree on unload. Also for some reason it crashes after
writing "setting size to ..." to /var/log/syslog.
However does this seem a worthwhile approach?
2) warning the user if size is too large.
In this patch I have used both "cat <<EOF" and multi line echo. I
should probably pick just one. Do you have a preference?
