Subject[PATCH v4 3/4] zram: record accessed second
Date
zRam as swap is useful for small memory device. However, swap means
those pages on zram are mostly cold pages due to VM's LRU algorithm.
Especially, once init data for application are touched for launching,
they tend to be not accessed any more and finally swapped out.
zRAM can store such cold pages as compressed form but it's pointless
to keep in memory. Better idea is app developers free them directly
rather than remaining them on heap.

This patch records last access time of each block of zram so that
With upcoming zram memory tracking, it could help userspace developers
to reduce memory footprint.
