Hi Seth --

Related, are you now comfortable with abandoning "zcache1" and
moving "zcache2" (now in drivers/staging/ramster in 3.7) to become
the one-and-only in-tree drivers/staging/zcache (with ramster
as a subdirectory and build option)?  It would be nice to get
rid of that artificial and confusing distinction as soon as possible,
especially if, due to zswap, you have no plans to continue to
maintain/enhance/promote zcache1 anymore.

If so, I'll work with Konrad to generate a drivers/staging
patch for Greg (post-window :-).
