Hello,

I've a v2:
-- squashed and re-order some of the patches;
-- run iozone with lockdep disabled.

=== quote ===

auto-compaction should not affect read-only tests, so we are interested
in write-only and read-write (mixed) tests, but I'll post complete test
stats:

iozone -t 3 -R -r 16K -s 60M -I +Z
ext4, 2g zram0 device, lzo, 4 compression streams max

test base auto-compact (compacted 67904 objs)
Initial write 2474943.62 2490551.69
Rewrite 3656121.38 3002796.31
Read 12068187.50 12044105.25
Re-read 12009777.25 11930537.50
Reverse Read 10858884.25 10388252.50
Stride read 10715304.75 10429308.00
Random read 10597970.50 10502978.75
Mixed workload 8517269.00 8701298.12
Random write 3595597.00 3465174.38
Pwrite 2507361.25 2553224.50
Pread 5380608.28 5340646.03
Fwrite 6123863.62 6130514.25
Fread 12006438.50 11936981.25

mm_stat after the test

base:
cat /sys/block/zram0/mm_stat
378834944 5748695 7446528 0 7450624 16318 0

auto-compaction:
cat /sys/block/zram0/mm_stat
378892288 5754987 7397376 0 7397376 16304 67904
