so this makes sense. I had another idea awhile ago

lkml.kernel.org/r/1456061274-20059-2-git-send-email-sergey.senozhatsky@gmail.com

in short, 3261 is good, but not as good as it possibly can be. for the
time being, our huge-class watermark starts at 3264. but this can
change.


a side note, I think we have sort of wrong API. zsmalloc knows better which
object is huge. and who knows, may be we will change the number of huge
classes someday or huge-class watermark, etc. so having "hey zsmalloc, is
this object huge or not" API seems to be better than ZRAM's enforcement
"hey zsmalloc, this object is huge".
