Subject[PATCH v5] zram: break the strict dependency from lzo
Date
From the beginning, the zram block device always enabled CRYPTO_LZO, since
lzo-rle is hardcoded as the fallback compression algorithm. As a consequence, on
systems where another compression algorithm is chosen (e.g. CRYPTO_ZSTD), the
lzo kernel module becomes unused, while still having to be built/loaded.

This patch removes the hardcoded lzo-rle dependency and allows the user to
select the default compression algorithm for zram at build time. The previous
behaviour is kept, as the default algorithm is still lzo-rle.

v5: incorporate Minchan's feedback. Allow the user to choose a default algorithm.
v4: incorporate Sergey's feedback and fix a small typo.
v3: fix the default selection when lzo isn't present. Rebase against 5.10-rc1.
v2: fix the dependency on CRYPTO.

I believe this is the final version, but it does deserve some comment. Given the
choice of having more preprocessor #if/#endif directives in C files or making
the kconfig a bit more complex, I went for the latter. However, since kconfig
choices can only be boolean, I had to devise a way to make a string selection
based on the boolean choice, hence the ZRAM_DEF_COMP symbol.
I also tried to make the ZRAM_AUTOSEL_ALGO definition a bit less painful to the
eye, while still allowing for the compression algorithms to be selected as
modules, as per Sergey's suggestion.
