Subject[RFC][PATCH 03/10] zsmalloc: introduce zs_can_compact() function
Date
this function checks if class compaction will free any pages.
rephrasing, do we have enough unused objects to form at least one
ZS_EMPTY page and free it. it aborts compaction if class compaction
will not result into any (further) savings.

EXAMPLE (this debug output is not part of this patch set):

-- class size
-- number of allocated objects
-- number of used objects,
-- estimated number of pages that will be freed

[ 3303.109043] class-1104: Compaction is useless
[..]

every "Compaction is useless" indicates that we saved some CPU cycles.

for example, class-1104 has

605 object allocated
599 objects used
11 objects per-page

even if we have ALMOST_EMPTY page, we still don't have enough room to move
all of its objects and free this page; so compaction will not make a lot of
sense here, it's better to just leave it as is.
