Subject[PATCHv7 0/7] add compressing abstraction and multi stream support
This patchset introduces zcomp compression backend abstraction
adding ability to support compression algorithms other than LZO;
support for multi compression streams, making parallel compressions

v6->v7 (reviewed by Minchan Kim):
-- enable multi and single stream support out of the box (drop
ZRAM_MULTI_STREAM config option)
-- add set_max_stream knob, so we can adjust max number of compression
streams in runtime (for multi stream backend at the moment)
-- minor code `nitpicks'

v5->v6 (reviewed by Minchan Kim):
-- handle single compression stream case separately, using mutex locking,
to address perfomance regression
-- handle multi compression stream using spin lock and wait_event()/wake_up()
-- make multi compression stream support configurable (ZRAM_MULTI_STREAM
config option)

v4->v5 (reviewed by Minchan Kim):
-- renamed zcomp buffer_lock; removed src len and dst len from
compress() and decompress(); not using term `buffer' and
`workmem' in code and documentation; define compress() and
decompress() functions for LZO backend; not using goto's;
do not put idle zcomp_strm to idle list tail.

v3->v4 (reviewed by Minchan Kim):
-- renamed compression backend and working memory structs as requested
by Minchan Kim; fixed several issues noted by Minchan Kim.
