I have a question about the code: why are multiple swap devices needed?
/sys/block/zram0/max_comp_streams can be set to whatever number is
wanted. While it might be useful to have additional zram devices
for different purposes, I don't think more than one zram swap is
useful. If you only have one device, then reloading the module is
no longer necessary to change the parameters, since everything
else seems to be configurable through sysfs.
