Linux 5.6 introduces optional f2fs transparent data compression support, which is implemented by LZO and lz4 compression algorithms. Now, the Linux 5.7 kernel is supporting the zstd compression algorithm.Jaegeuk Kim, the f2fs maintainer, has incorporated a patch submitted by Huawei engineers to support the zstd compression algorithm, as well as compression support at the file system level.

This means that on Linux kernel 5.7 and later, zstd compression can be enabled by setting compress "algorithm = zstd when mounting the f2fs file system.

Finally, the Linux 5.7 merge window will start in early April, and this work is currently queued as part of the f2fs development tree.
