There are a few atomic_t statistics in zswap that are valuable to have
in the debugfs attributes. Rather than have non-atomic mirrors of all
of them, as is done in zcache right now (see
drivers/staging/ramster/zcache-main.c:131), I thought this to be a
cleaner solution.

Granted, I personally have no use for the setting part; only the
getting part. I only included the setting operations to keep the
balance and conform with the rest of the debugfs implementation.
