This patch promotes the slab-based zsmalloc memory allocator
from the staging tree to mm/

zcache depends on this allocator for storing compressed RAM pages
in an efficient way under system wide memory pressure where
high-order (greater than 0) page allocation are very likely to
fail.

For more information on zsmalloc and its internals, read the
documentation at the top of the zsmalloc c file.

+	  zsmalloc is a slab-based memory allocator designed to store
