Although we don't show "deflate", zram still supports it so is it okay
for the user forgotten about it? and zram still doesn't show all of
compression algorithm in system.

If I misunderstood your point, please, clarify.

Again, my point is that I want to show limited representative compression
(high speed/low comp, low speed/high comp, mid/mid) algorithm via
/sys/block/zram0/comp_algorithm rather than adding new entry whenever
new algorithm is added on. If others want something else algorithms
by some reason, he still can do it. We didn't prevent it.
