Could you please stop perverting the facts, I did answer to that:

Apart from that, an opinion is not necessarily something I would
answer. Concerns about zsmalloc are not in the scope of this patch's
discussion. If you have any concerns regarding this particular patch,
please let us know.

The problem with your approach is that in your world I need to prove
my right to use zbud. This is a very strange speculation.

> We should provide it for CMA as well as external fragmentation.

I doubt that but I'll answer in this thread: as zsmalloc deficiencies do not
have direct relation to this particular patch.

Yep, and determinism is more important to me than the memory
efficiency. Dropping the compression ration from 3.2x to 1.8x is okay
with me and stalls in UI are not.
