Subject[PATCHv9 0/7] add compressing abstraction and multi stream support
This patchset introduces zcomp compression backend abstraction
adding ability to support compression algorithms other than LZO;
support for multi compression streams, making parallel compressions
possible; adds support for LZ4 compression algorithm.

v8->v9 (reviewed by Andrew Morton):
-- add LZ4 backend (+iozone test vs LZO)
-- merge patches 'zram: document max_comp_streams' and 'zram: add multi
stream functionality'
-- do not extern backend struct from source file
-- use find()/release() naming instead of get()/put()
-- minor code, commit messages and code comments `nitpicks'
-- removed Acked-by Minchan Kim from first two patches, because I've
changed them a bit.

v7->v8 (reviewed by Minchan Kim):
-- merge patches 'add multi stream functionality' and 'enable multi
stream compression support in zram'
-- return status code from set_max_streams knob and print message on
-- do not use atomic type for ->avail_strm
-- return back: allocate by default only one stream for multi stream backend
-- wake sleeping write in zcomp_strm_multi_put() only if we put stream
to idle list
-- minor code `nitpicks'

v6->v7 (reviewed by Minchan Kim):
-- enable multi and single stream support out of the box (drop
ZRAM_MULTI_STREAM config option)
-- add set_max_stream knob, so we can adjust max number of compression
streams in runtime (for multi stream backend at the moment)
-- minor code `nitpicks'

v5->v6 (reviewed by Minchan Kim):
-- handle single compression stream case separately, using mutex locking,
to address perfomance regression
-- handle multi compression stream using spin lock and wait_event()/wake_up()
-- make multi compression stream support configurable (ZRAM_MULTI_STREAM
config option)

v4->v5 (reviewed by Minchan Kim):
-- renamed zcomp buffer_lock; removed src len and dst len from
compress() and decompress(); not using term `buffer' and
`workmem' in code and documentation; define compress() and
decompress() functions for LZO backend; not using goto's;
do not put idle zcomp_strm to idle list tail.

v3->v4 (reviewed by Minchan Kim):
-- renamed compression backend and working memory structs as requested
by Minchan Kim; fixed several issues noted by Minchan Kim.

Sergey Senozhatsky (7):
zram: introduce compressing backend abstraction
zram: use zcomp compressing backends
zram: factor out single stream compression
zram: add multi stream functionality
zram: add set_max_streams knob
zram: make compression algorithm selection possible
zram: add lz4 algorithm backend
