CPU0:				       CPU1:
backing_dev_show		       backing_dev_store
    ......				   ......
    file = zram->backing_dev;
    down_read(&zram->init_lock);	   down_read(&zram->init_init_lock)
    file_path(file, ...);		   zram->backing_dev = backing_dev;
    up_read(&zram->init_lock);		   up_read(&zram->init_lock);

get the value of zram->backing_dev too early in backing_dev_show,
that will result the value may be NULL at the begining, and not
NULL later.
