Looks good to me.

Minchan & Sergey, can you please review?

Subject: zram: pass down the bvec we need to read into in the work struct

When scheduling work item to read page we need to pass down the proper
bvec struct which points to the page to read into. Before this patch it
uses a randomly initialized bvec (only if PAGE_SIZE != 4096) which is
wrong.

Note that without this patch on arch/kernel where PAGE_SIZE != 4096
userspace could read random memory through a zram block device (thought
userspace probably would have no control on the address being read).
