Hi Daniel,

Thanks for this. I tried it and it seemed to work initially. however when running on the test system it causes a kernel panic with Cent OS 6.2. I wonder if there are any other file systems which also offer zlib compression ? I am sure on a different Linux flavour, this would work great.
