ext: Replace gzstream with iostream3 from zlib to avoid LGPL
Review Request #3262 - Created Dec. 28, 2015 and submitted
Changeset 11287:570dfe1af846 --------------------------- ext: Replace gzstream with iostream3 from zlib to avoid LGPL This patch replaces the gzstream zlib wrapper with the iostream3 wrapper provided as part of zlib contributions. The main reason for the switch is to avoid including LGPL in the default gem5 build. iostream3 is provided under a more permissive license: The code is provided "as is", with the permission to use, copy, modify, distribute and sell it for any purpose without fee.

Tested this using some pre-existing gzipped traces and it works fine by simply replacing class names and header includes.
