Subject[PATCHv2] zram: restrict add/remove attributes to root only
Date
zram hot_add sysfs attribute is a very 'special' attribute - reading
from it creates a new uninitialized zram device. This file, by a mistake,
can be read by a 'normal' user at the moment, while only root must be
able to create a new zram device, therefore hot_add attribute must have
S_IRUSR mode, not S_IRUGO.

Fixes: 6566d1a32bf72 ("zram: add dynamic device add/remove functionality")
