Description : A hardware accelerated version of zLib using PCIe with FPGA
GenWQE (Generic Work Queue Engine) is a PCIe acceleration card. This repository
contains the source code to test, maintain and update the GenWQE PCIe card.
Furthermore a zlib version with hardware acceleration is provided to do zlib
style compression/decompression according to RFC1950, RFC1951 and RFC1952. This
can be used as alternative to the traditional software zlib.
This package dependes on a specific PCIe3 FPGA Accelerator Adapter. You can
find them at:
I want to maintain this package as I am one of the main ppc64el porters, and I
am in the DD process to become one.
