SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 1/8] lib: prepare zstd for preboot environment
Hi Nick,
I finally got some time to review your patch, here are my comments:

I'm not sure if this is needed. When I worked on my patch, I have found that
all exporting and modinfo macros generate symbols in modinfo and discard.ksym
sections, which are then dropped by the vmlinux linker script, thus one
will get the same binary independently if he puts this change in or not.

I'm not sure if this is intentional as there is also __DISABLE_EXPORTS define,
which should be used by a decompressor (according to comments in export.h).

No comments to the rest.
