[Lzip-bug] Patch adding lzip support to busybox

I have written a patch that adds full lzip/lunzip support to busybox, including seamless lz decompression (of tar.lz files, etc), but not including tar.lz archive creation.

The resulting busybox lzip applet and the real lzip produce bit-for-bit identical *compressed* files.

I have also written a description of the changes and a listing of the size increases to busybox object files.


The patch has to be applied to the latest busybox snapshot like this:

  cd busybox
  patch -p1 < <path>/busybox_lzip-6.patch

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

Best regards,
Antonio Diaz, lzip author and maintainer.
