how about something like this? remove max_comp_streams entirely, but
leave the attr. if we keep zram->max_comp_streams and return its value
(set by user space) from show() handler, we are techically lying;
because the actual number of streams is now num_online_cpus().

Subject: [PATCH] zram: remove max_comp_streams internals

Remove the internal part of max_comp_streams interface, since we
switched to per-cpu streams. We will keep RW max_comp_streams attr
around, because:

a) we may (silently) switch back to idle compression streams list
and don't want to disturb user space
b) max_comp_streams attr must wait for the next 'lay off cycle';
we give user space 2 years to adjust before we remove/downgrade
the attr, and there are already several attrs scheduled for
removal in 4.11, so it's too late for max_comp_streams.
