---Problem Description---
Hardware team reported some rare data corruption during uncompression for nx842 co-processor. It might provide user with invalid data after uncompression. So the fix is add CRC support - means Linux adds CRC flag before calling the nx842 so that CRC will be added and checked during compression and uncompression calls.

The fix is simple with just adding CRC flags before invoking nx842 coprocessor calls. Posted patch and waiting for maintainer to get in to his tree. 


Please include this fix in ubuntu 15.10 release.
