Subject: zram: support page writeback

There is demand to writeback specific process pages to backing store
instead of all idles pages in the system due to storage wear out concerns
and to launching latency of apps which are most of the time idle but are
critical for resume latency.

This patch extends the writeback knob to support a specific page
writeback.

 With the command, zram writeback idle pages from memory to the storage.
 
+If admin want to write a specific page in zram device to backing device,
+they could write a page index into the interface.

 If there are lots of write IO with flash device, potentially, it has
 flash wearout problem so that admin needs to design write limitation
 to guarantee storage health for entire product life.
