This patchset creates a new driver class under drivers/ for
memory management related drivers, like zcache.

This driver class would be for drivers that don't actually enabled
a hardware device, but rather augment the memory manager in some
way.

In-tree candidates for this driver class are zcache, zram, and
lowmemorykiller, both in staging.

I was going back and forth with Dan whether it should be in mm/
or in drivers/mm.

But with some many (well, three of them) I think sticking them in
drviers/mm makes more sense.
