Subject[PATCHv5 00/10] add on-demand device creation
Date
We currently don't support zram on-demand device creation.  The only way
to have N zram devices is to specify num_devices module parameter (default
value 1). That means that if, for some reason, at some point, user wants
to have N + 1 devies he/she must umount all the existing devices, unload
the module, load the module passing num_devices equals to N + 1.

This patchset introduces zram-control sysfs class, which has two sysfs
attrs:

- hot_add -- add a new zram device
- hot_remove -- remove a specific (device_id) zram device

Usage example:
# add a new specific zram device
cat /sys/class/zram-control/hot_add
1

# remove a specific zram device
echo 4 > /sys/class/zram-control/hot_remove

V5:
-- rename zram_add/zram_remove to hot_add/hot_remove (per Minchan's request)

V4:
-- add patch from Minchan to handle differently a deadlock suspected by lockdep
-- use zram->claim in zram_remove()

V3:
-- rebase against 4.1
-- review comments from Minchan were addressed
-- no sysfs RO tricks anymore

V2:
-- quick rebase and cleanup in attempt to catch 4.1 merge window

Minchan Kim (1):
zram: close race by open overriding

Sergey Senozhatsky (9):
zram: add `compact` sysfs entry to documentation
zram: cosmetic ZRAM_ATTR_RO code formatting tweak
zram: use idr instead of `zram_devices' array
zram: reorganize code layout
zram: remove max_num_devices limitation
zram: report every added and removed device
zram: trivial: correct flag operations comment
zram: return zram device_id from zram_add()
zram: add dynamic device add/remove functionality
