As I have stated before, I want this code to get merged out of the
drivers/staging/ area _before_ any new features get added to it.  People
are taking too much time adding new stuff, like this, and no one seems
to be working to get it merged to the proper place anymore.

So again, I'm going to have to say no to a new feature here, sorry.
zcache, zram, and zsmalloc need to get cleaned up and merged out of
staging before anything new can be added to them.

Or, if no one is working on that, I guess I can just delete them,
right?...

thanks,

greg k-h
