It just a sample for pstore_blk, which can used to record OOPS log on
ram buffer. This module make it easier for device, without panic apis,
to record oops log only.

Sure, blkz_sample_write (named blkz_default_general_write now) just
return -EINVAL without bzinfo->part_path. How is the write path? It is
blkoops_pstore_write->blkz_dmesg_write->blkz_zone_write->blkz_default_general_write.
The blkz_zone_write will save the log to ram buffer even
blkz_default_general_write return failure.
