Why is this in xv_create_pool(). AFAICT, it can be called multiple
times if there's more than one zram device. Do we really need
variables for these? They look like something GCC constant propagation
should take care of if they would be defines or static inline
functions.

This doesn't look right. You shouldn't put variable declarations in
header files.
