Sounds like the ramster has been reverted already, but the removal
of xvmalloc was done in its own commit (from staging-next):

b154ff05e1b0d749231a71896c90e38657f8e675 staging: zram: remove xvmalloc

If you revert just this commit, that should restore the xvmalloc files.

Of course this doesn't resolve the "implicit declaration of function"
errors.
