Subject[PATCH v2] zsmalloc: Add Kconfig for enabling PTE method
Date
Zsmalloc has two methods 1) copy-based and 2) pte-based to access
allocations that span two pages. You can see history why we supported
two approach from [1].

In summary, copy-based method is 3 times fater in x86 while pte-based
is 6 times faster in ARM.

But it was bad choice that adding hard coding to select architecture
which want to use pte based method. This patch removed it and adds
new Kconfig to select the approach.

This patch is based on next-20130205.

+ By default, zsmalloc uses a copy-based object mapping method to access
+ allocations that span two pages. However, if a particular architecture
+ performs VM mapping faster than copying, then you should select this.
