Fair enough. When I google zram documentation, first hit is
https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/blockdev/zram.txt
So, it's enough if google search doesn't change his mind.
Otherwise, we could point out above URL.

AFAIK, kernel rule doesn't prefer multi-line for printk string
because it makes hard to work with grep. Anyway, it's trivial.
For example, checkpatch will emit

WARNING: quoted string split across lines

Anyway, I agree with your way.

Thanks.
