A proposal to add ODP based compression/decompression API to provide portable hardware accelerated access for data plane applications that require compression/decompression. The proposal outlines 2 schemes: A. Reuse the existing Cryptography API to support Compression. B. Introduce independent Compression API. The initial implementation will target Cavium OCTEON TX SoC to accelerate IP Compression (IPComp)

A proposal to add ODP based support for PCI-e Endpoint mode of operation. In the Endpoint mode the ODP implementation runs on the Endpoint device while the Root Complex(PCI-e host) will appear as a peripheral device. The proposal outlines 2 ways in which the Root Complex can be registered with ODP: A. As a NIC device B. As a Co-processor. The initial implementation will target Cavium OCTEON TX SoC
