There is no unresolved issue to me. Only one thing I suspect was the
feature user enforce new device id for dynamic device addition and
we finally decided to remove the function because there was no useful
usecase at this point. Sergey and other userland people agreed that
so Sergey sent a patch [zram: do not let user enforce new device dev_id]
https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/3/6/427
So, I'm happy with that. Acutally, I wanted to resend whole patchset
for dynamic device creation/remove patchset with corrected version
(ie, remove user enforce new device id) to avoid confusion but didn't
said it to Sergey. It was my bad.

Sergey, Could you resend this patchset without user's enforce device id
function based on new -rc1?

I will keep it in mind.
Thanks.
