Daniel, 

Yes, This patch series enables GZIP engine and provides user space API.
Whereas VAS fault handling series process faults if NX sees fault on
request buffer.  

selftest -

or https://github.com/abalib/power-gzip/tree/develop/selftest

More tests are available - https://github.com/abalib/power-gzip

libnxz - https://github.com/libnxz/power-gzip  

Thanks
Haren
