This patch adds the updated cramfs-toolssuite from Nicolas Pitre.
This version has additional featuresimplemented over the 1.1 version stillpackaged in some other distros, whichis unmaintained (available onhttps://sourceforge.net/projects/cramfs/)
It handles uncompressed blocks, randomblock placement and XiP.
Lightly tested, by loop-mounting a tiny (4kB)cramfs in a file, worked fine.

This was obsoleted, but then resurrected later...
From wikikpedia[...]In 2013, Linux maintainers indicated that cramfs was made obsolete bysquashfs,[1] but the file system got rehabilitated in 2017 for use inlow-memory devices where using squashfs may not be viable.[...]
And also the guix kernel has support for it...So why not ?

As reported by ‘guix lint’, please don’t refer to a generated tarball.
Instead you can use a hosted “hand-crafted” tarball if there’s one or,more likely, ‘git-fetch’.

Could you write “file systems” (two words)? This is by convention inGNU and Guix.
Thanks in advance!

Applied!
Toggle quote (2 lines)> + (license license:gpl2)))
I changed that to ‘gpl2+’ because I noticed that source file headerscarry the “or any later version” wording.
Thanks,Ludo’.
