There was a reply from Greg:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/6/26/410

and it seems that Greg's request has not been fullfilled.

Anyway Piotr's patch seems to be more complete:
- it also fixes case in which invalid "zcache=" option is given (returns
an error value 1 while with your patch the code still erronously retuns 0)
- it prints information about compressor type being used when "zcache="
option is used (your patch skips it due to addition of "goto out_alloc")

Best regards,
