Subject[PATCH 1/1] lib/zlib: DFLTCC deflate does not write all available bits for Z_NO_FLUSH
DFLTCC deflate with Z_NO_FLUSH might generate a corrupted stream when
the output buffer is not large enough to fit all the deflate output at
once. The problem takes place on closing the deflate block since
flush_pending() might leave some output bits not written.
Similar problem for software deflate with Z_BLOCK flush option (not
supported by kernel zlib deflate) has been fixed a while ago in userspace
zlib but the fix never got to the kernel.
Now flush_pending() flushes the bit buffer before copying out the byte buffer,
in order to really flush as much as possible.
Currently there are no users of DFLTCC deflate with Z_NO_FLUSH option in the
kernel so the problem remained hidden for a while.

This commit is based on the old zlib commit:
