Inherently, swap device has many idle pages which are rare touched since
it was allocated. It is never problem if we use storage device as swap.
However, it's just waste for zram-swap.

This patchset supports zram idle page writeback feature.

* Admin can define what is idle page "no access since X time ago"
* Admin can define when zram should writeback them
* Admin can define when zram should stop writeback to prevent wearout

Detail is on each patch's description.

Below first two patches are -stable material so it could go first
separately with others in this series.

  zram: fix double free backing device
