    I knew where to find the tarballs. I was asking where to find a git repo I could use to bisect in a more granular fashion. Anyway, someone else pointed me to https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux.git/, which is what I needed (it has a branch that corresponds to the lts releases).

    Look at zswap_fontswap_load() in mm/zswap.c. It uses zpool_map_handle() (line 1261) to get a pointer for a single compressed page from zbud/z3fold/zsmalloc, and then decompresses it into the target page.
