Thanks for handling this quickly. I acknowlege dynamic device management part
but I want to review your patchset carefully one more time because you changed
a lot although it's just refactoring. Really sorry for late review. It's totally
my bad. Probably, I will have time to review next week so I feel it's too late
to merge it into 4.1 but I think there is no urgency to merge it.

So Andrew, could you pick 0001 in this merge window? Without it, zram cannot
use compaction feature of zsmalloc so zsmalloc's compaciton feature will be
void.
