Subject[PATCHv3 7/7] zram: deprecate zram attrs sysfs nodes
Date
Add Documentation/ABI/obsolete/sysfs-block-zram file and list
obsolete and deprecated attributes there. The patch also adds
additional information to zram documentation and describes the
basic strategy:
- the existing RW nodes will be downgraded to WO nodes (in 4.11)
- deprecated RO sysfs nodes will eventually be removed (in 4.11)

Users will be additionally notified about deprecated attr usage
by pr_warn_once() (added to every deprecated attr _show()), as
suggested by Minchan Kim.

User space is advised to use zram<id>/stat, zram<id>/io_stat and
zram<id>/mm_stat files.

+Description:
+ The notify_free file is read-only. Depending on device usage
+ scenario it may account a) the number of pages freed because
+ of swap slot free notifications or b) the number of pages freed
+ because of REQ_DISCARD requests sent by bio. The former ones
+ are sent to a swap block device when a swap slot is freed, which
+ implies that this disk is being used as a swap disk. The latter
+ ones are sent by filesystem mounted with discard option,
+ whenever some data blocks are getting discarded.

+Description:

+ The limit could be changed in run time and "0" means disable
+ the limit. No limit is the initial state. Unit: bytes

+The basic strategy is:

+The list of deprecated attributes can be found here:

+Basically, every attribute that has its own read accessible sysfs node
