Subject[RFC][PATCH 07/10] zsmalloc: introduce auto-compact support
Date
perform class compaction in zs_free(), if zs_free() has created
a ZS_ALMOST_EMPTY page. this is the most trivial `policy'.

probably it would make zs_can_compact() to return an estimated number
of pages that potentially will be free and trigger auto-compaction
only when it's above some limit (e.g. at least 4 zs pages); or put it
under config option.

this also tweaks __zs_compact() -- we can't do reschedule
anymore, waiting for new pages in the current class. so we
compact as much as we can and return immediately if compaction
is not possible anymore.

auto-compaction is not a replacement of manual compaction.

compiled linux kernel with auto-compaction:

cat /sys/block/zram0/mm_stat
2339885056 1601034235 1624076288 0 1624076288 19961 1106

performing additional manual compaction:

echo 1 > /sys/block/zram0/compact
cat /sys/block/zram0/mm_stat
2339885056 1601034235 1624051712 0 1624076288 19961 1114

manual compaction was able to migrate additional 8 objects. so
auto-compaction is 'good enough'.

TEST

this test copies a 1.3G linux kernel tar to mounted zram disk,
and extracts it.

w/auto-compaction:

cat /sys/block/zram0/mm_stat
1171456 26006 86016 0 86016 32781 0

time tar xf linux-3.10.tar.gz -C linux

=====================================================================

w/o auto compaction:

cat /sys/block/zram0/mm_stat
1171456 26000 81920 0 81920 32781 0

time tar xf linux-3.10.tar.gz -C linux

iozone shows that auto-compacted code runs faster in several
tests, which is hardly trustworthy. anyway.
