notify_free device attribute accounts the number of slot free notifications
and internally represents the number of zram_free_page() calls. Slot free
notifications are sent only when device is used as a swap device, hence
notify_free is used only for swap devices. Since f4659d8e620d08 (zram:
support REQ_DISCARD) ZRAM handles yet another one free notification (also
via zram_free_page() call) -- REQ_DISCARD requests, which are sent by a
filesystem, whenever some data blocks are discarded. However, there is no
way to know the number of notifications in the latter case.

Use notify_free to account the number of pages freed in zram_free_page(),
instead of accounting only swap_slot_free_notify() calls (each
zram_slot_free_notify() call frees one page).

This means that depending on usage scenario notify_free represents:
 a) the number of pages freed because of slot free notifications, which is
   equal to the number of swap_slot_free_notify() calls, so there is no
   behaviour change

 b) the number of pages freed because of REQ_DISCARD notifications

It is wrong. The zram_free_page is called at several places and
they are all not notify free.
Pz, account it in zram_slot_free_notify and zram_bio_discard.

will resend shortly.
sorry.
