The rabbit hole goes deeper than I thought. The do_zipwork function came into being with @gad 's rS130167 commit back in 2004. Then the array of compression types was added in rS218127, then compression arguments were added in rS326617. Some of the code from the original commit remained but no longer makes sense, or is now being done in the wrong place.

I'm open to any other simplification ideas, but the storing of the compression options in their own separate arrays plus that nested loop particularly hurt my eyes.

I like the functionality added and that the timeout is configurable via a command line option. However, I would prefer to have the default off... But I leave the decision up to you.

Updated to address comments, and added a -t option to allow for adjustment of the timeout.

I wonder if the wchan for the process can be printed easily instead of 'sleeping'

I'd suggest make a new command-line switch for this functionality so we can:
1- set timeout dynamically
2- have the original behavior by not using the switch

dnelson_1901_yahoo.com added a comment to D13921: sysutils/devcpu-data: Migrate our microcode update on Intel to use precreated files..

In case anyone is wondering why there are fewer files installed as compared to the files extracted from microcode.dat, the old ucode-tool wrote each microcode update into a separate file, whereas the new files combine all the updates for a given family-model-stepping combination into their own files. Multiple updates in the same file will each have a different processor_flags value. Using the iucode-tool program to dump each set of files shows that they both include the same number of updates:

Dan, does your filesystem use attribute names that start in "system." or "user."?

For what it's worth, this patch seems to work when used with the net/s3ql filesystem. It has a unique method of communicating with the running daemon: it gets/sets extended attributes on a hidden control file in the mounted filesystem.
