Compcache (compressed caching) provides the ability to use part of the RAM as
compressed swap. In other words, you can take a portion of your RAM (default
25%) and use it as swap, compressing the data before moving it into swap, and
decompressing it when moving it out of swap. This is a classic time-space
trade-off. You effectively get more memory, but some of it is slower than
normal RAM due to the CPU time required to compress and decompress the swapped
