Staging: zram: Replace ioctls with sysfs interface
Creates per-device sysfs nodes in /sys/block/zram<id>/ Currently following stats are exported: - disksize - num_reads - num_writes - invalid_io - zero_pages - orig_data_size - compr_data_size - mem_used_total By default, disksize is set to 0. So, to start using a zram device, fist write a disksize value and then initialize device by writing any positive value to initstate. For example: # initialize /dev/zram0 with 50MB disksize echo 50*1024*1024 | bc > /sys/block/zram0/disksize echo 1 > /sys/block/zram0/initstate When done using a disk, issue reset to free its memory by writing any positive value to reset node: echo 1 > /sys/block/zram0/reset This change also obviates the need for 'rzscontrol' utility.
