* enum xz_mode - Operation mode
* @XZ_SINGLE: Single-call mode. This uses less RAM than
* than multi-call modes, because the LZMA2
* dictionary doesn't need to be allocated as
* part of the decoder state. All required data
* structures are allocated at initialization,
* so xz_dec_run() cannot return XZ_MEM_ERROR.
* @XZ_PREALLOC: Multi-call mode with preallocated LZMA2
* dictionary buffer. All data structures are
* allocated at initialization, so xz_dec_run()
* cannot return XZ_MEM_ERROR.
* @XZ_DYNALLOC: Multi-call mode. The LZMA2 dictionary is
* allocated once the required size has been
* parsed from the stream headers. If the
* allocation fails, xz_dec_run() will return
* It is possible to enable support only for a subset of the above
* modes at compile time by defining XZ_DEC_SINGLE, XZ_DEC_PREALLOC,
* or XZ_DEC_DYNALLOC. The xz_dec kernel module is always compiled
* with support for all operation modes, but the preboot code may
* be built with fewer features to minimize code size.
enum xz_mode {
* enum xz_ret - Return codes
* @XZ_OK: Everything is OK so far. More input or more
* output space is required to continue. This
* return code is possible only in multi-call mode
* @XZ_STREAM_END: Operation finished successfully.
* @XZ_UNSUPPORTED_CHECK: Integrity check type is not supported. Decoding
* is still possible in multi-call mode by simply
* calling xz_dec_run() again.
* Note that this return value is used only if
* XZ_DEC_ANY_CHECK was defined at build time,
* which is not used in the kernel. Unsupported
* check types return XZ_OPTIONS_ERROR if
* XZ_DEC_ANY_CHECK was not defined at build time.
* @XZ_MEM_ERROR: Allocating memory failed. This return code is
* possible only if the decoder was initialized
* with XZ_DYNALLOC. The amount of memory that was
* tried to be allocated was no more than the
* dict_max argument given to xz_dec_init().
* @XZ_MEMLIMIT_ERROR: A bigger LZMA2 dictionary would be needed than
* allowed by the dict_max argument given to
* xz_dec_init(). This return value is possible
* only in multi-call mode (XZ_PREALLOC or
* XZ_DYNALLOC); the single-call mode (XZ_SINGLE)
* ignores the dict_max argument.
* @XZ_FORMAT_ERROR: File format was not recognized (wrong magic
* bytes).
* @XZ_OPTIONS_ERROR: This implementation doesn't support the requested
* compression options. In the decoder this means
* that the header CRC32 matches, but the header
* itself specifies something that we don't support.
* @XZ_DATA_ERROR: Compressed data is corrupt.
* @XZ_BUF_ERROR: Cannot make any progress. Details are slightly
* different between multi-call and single-call
* mode; more information below.
* In multi-call mode, XZ_BUF_ERROR is returned when two consecutive calls
* to XZ code cannot consume any input and cannot produce any new output.
* This happens when there is no new input available, or the output buffer
* is full while at least one output byte is still pending. Assuming your
* code is not buggy, you can get this error only when decoding a compressed
* stream that is truncated or otherwise corrupt.
* In single-call mode, XZ_BUF_ERROR is returned only when the output buffer
* is too small or the compressed input is corrupt in a way that makes the
* decoder produce more output than the caller expected. When it is
* (relatively) clear that the compressed input is truncated, XZ_DATA_ERROR
* is used instead of XZ_BUF_ERROR.
enum xz_ret {
* struct xz_buf - Passing input and output buffers to XZ code
* @in: Beginning of the input buffer. This may be NULL if and only
* if in_pos is equal to in_size.
* @in_pos: Current position in the input buffer. This must not exceed
* in_size.
* @in_size: Size of the input buffer
* @out: Beginning of the output buffer. This may be NULL if and only
* if out_pos is equal to out_size.
* @out_pos: Current position in the output buffer. This must not exceed
* out_size.
* @out_size: Size of the output buffer
* Only the contents of the output buffer from out[out_pos] onward, and
* the variables in_pos and out_pos are modified by the XZ code.

const uint8_t *in;

* struct xz_dec - Opaque type to hold the XZ decoder state
struct xz_dec;
* xz_dec_init() - Allocate and initialize a XZ decoder state
* @mode: Operation mode
* @dict_max: Maximum size of the LZMA2 dictionary (history buffer) for
* multi-call decoding. This is ignored in single-call mode
* (mode == XZ_SINGLE). LZMA2 dictionary is always 2^n bytes
* or 2^n + 2^(n-1) bytes (the latter sizes are less common
* in practice), so other values for dict_max don't make sense.
* In the kernel, dictionary sizes of 64 KiB, 128 KiB, 256 KiB,
* 512 KiB, and 1 MiB are probably the only reasonable values,
* except for kernel and initramfs images where a bigger
* dictionary can be fine and useful.
* Single-call mode (XZ_SINGLE): xz_dec_run() decodes the whole stream at
* once. The caller must provide enough output space or the decoding will
* fail. The output space is used as the dictionary buffer, which is why
* there is no need to allocate the dictionary as part of the decoder's
* internal state.
* Because the output buffer is used as the workspace, streams encoded using
* a big dictionary are not a problem in single-call mode. It is enough that
* the output buffer is big enough to hold the actual uncompressed data; it
* can be smaller than the dictionary size stored in the stream headers.
* Multi-call mode with preallocated dictionary (XZ_PREALLOC): dict_max bytes
* of memory is preallocated for the LZMA2 dictionary. This way there is no
* risk that xz_dec_run() could run out of memory, since xz_dec_run() will
* never allocate any memory. Instead, if the preallocated dictionary is too
* small for decoding the given input stream, xz_dec_run() will return
* XZ_MEMLIMIT_ERROR. Thus, it is important to know what kind of data will be
* decoded to avoid allocating excessive amount of memory for the dictionary.
* Multi-call mode with dynamically allocated dictionary (XZ_DYNALLOC):
* dict_max specifies the maximum allowed dictionary size that xz_dec_run()
* may allocate once it has parsed the dictionary size from the stream
* headers. This way excessive allocations can be avoided while still
* limiting the maximum memory usage to a sane value to prevent running the
* system out of memory when decompressing streams from untrusted sources.
* On success, xz_dec_init() returns a pointer to struct xz_dec, which is
* ready to be used with xz_dec_run(). If memory allocation fails,
* xz_dec_init() returns NULL.

* xz_dec_run() - Run the XZ decoder
* @s: Decoder state allocated using xz_dec_init()
* @b: Input and output buffers
* The possible return values depend on build options and operation mode.
* See enum xz_ret for details.
* Note that if an error occurs in single-call mode (return value is not
* XZ_STREAM_END), b->in_pos and b->out_pos are not modified and the
* contents of the output buffer from b->out[b->out_pos] onward are
* undefined. This is true even after XZ_BUF_ERROR, because with some filter
* chains, there may be a second pass over the output buffer, and this pass
* cannot be properly done if the output buffer is truncated. Thus, you
* cannot give the single-call decoder a too small buffer and then expect to
* get that amount valid data from the beginning of the stream. You must use
* the multi-call decoder if you don't want to uncompress the whole stream.
