Subject[PATCHv2 09/10] zram: return zram device_id value from zram_add()
Date
zram_add requires valid device_id to be provided, that can be a bit
inconvenient. Change zram_add() to return negative value upon new device
creation failure, and device_id (>= 0) value otherwise.

This prepares zram_add to perform automatic device_id assignment. New
device_id will be returned back to user-space (so user can reference that
device as /dev/zramX).
