Subject: [PATCH] lib/xz: Fix XZ_DYNALLOC to avoid useless memory reallocations
Date: Mon, 4 Nov 2019 18:51:07 +0200
Message-ID: <20191104185107.3b6330df@tukaani.org> (raw)

From: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org>

s->dict.allocated was initialized to 0 but never set after a successful
allocation, thus the code always thought that the dictionary buffer has
to be reallocated.
