samba doesn't implement compression at the moment.

I've been doing some research on and off on it... I have C code for
decompression that I merged in Wireshark for LZ77, LZ77+huffman and LZW;
for the compression side I have python code that needs to be translated
to C to hopefully be integrated in the kernel client and samba.
