Sorry for the long delay. I was horribly busy for a few weeks. ;-(

1.
I didn't see your next patch but I bet it is thing to apply this new API to zram.
Normally, it's hard to review without callsite in same patch because sometime
we need to know context where the API is used. In my understanding, if we judge
new API is really complex to get review from others, then, introducing new API
function without callsite is justified enough. In this case, I think it's simple
enough. :)

2.

Can't zram ask to zsmalloc about what size is for hugeobject from?
With that, zram can save the wartermark in itself and use it.
What I mean is as follows,

zram:
size_t huge_size = _zs_huge_object(pool);
..
..
if (comp_size >= huge_size)
memcpy(dst, src, 4K);
