Subject[PATCH v7 1/4] zram: Fix deadlock bug in partial read/write
Date
Now zram allocates new page with GFP_KERNEL in zram I/O path
if IO is partial. Unfortunately, It may cause deadlock with
reclaim path like below.

write_page from fs
fs_lock
allocation(GFP_KERNEL)
reclaim
pageout
write_page from fs
fs_lock <-- deadlock

This patch fixes it by using GFP_NOIO. In read path, we
reorganize code flow so that kmap_atomic is called after the
GFP_NOIO allocation.
