Subject[PATCHv3 1/2] zsmalloc: introduce zs_huge_object() function
Date
Not every object can be share its zspage with other objects, e.g.
when the object is as big as zspage or nearly as big a zspage.
For such objects zsmalloc has a so called huge class - every object
which belongs to huge class consumes the entire zspage (which
consists of a physical page). On x86_64, PAGE_SHIFT 12 box, the
first non-huge class size is 3264, so starting down from size 3264,
objects can share page(-s) and thus minimize memory wastage.

ZRAM, however, has its own statically defined watermark for huge
objects - "3 * PAGE_SIZE / 4 = 3072", and forcibly stores every
object larger than this watermark (3072) as a PAGE_SIZE object,
in other words, to a huge class, while zsmalloc can keep some of
those objects in non-huge classes. This results in increased
memory consumption.

zsmalloc knows better if the object is huge or not. Introduce
zs_huge_object() function which tells if the given object can be
stored in one of non-huge classes or not. This will let us to drop
ZRAM's huge object watermark and fully rely on zsmalloc when we
decide if the object is huge.
