Needed a bit of tweaking due to

Subject: mm/zsmalloc: don't fail if can't create debugfs info

Change the return type of zs_pool_stat_create() to void, and
remove the logic to abort pool creation if the stat debugfs
dir/file could not be created.

The debugfs stat file is for debugging/information only, and doesn't
affect operation of zsmalloc; there is no reason to abort creating
the pool if the stat file can't be created. This was seen with
zswap, which used the same name for all pool creations, which caused
zsmalloc to fail to create a second pool for zswap if
CONFIG_ZSMALLOC_STAT was enabled.
