seems that it also has some cleaup bits in it.

		^^^^^

do you need to NULL a pool->handle_cachep here?

zs_create_pool()
	if (create_cache() == 1) {
			pool->zspage_cachep NULL
			pool->handle_cachep !NULL   already freed -> kmem_cache_destroy()
			return 1;
		goto err
	}
err:
	zs_destroy_pool()
		destroy_cache() {
			kmem_cache_destroy(pool->handle_cachep);  !NULL and freed
			kmem_cache_destroy(pool->zspage_cachep);  NULL ok
		}


can we also switch create_cache() to errnos? I just like a bit
better
		return -ENOMEM;
	else
		return 0;

than

		return 1;
	else
		return 0;

	static unsigned long location_to_obj()

it's already returning "(unsigned long)", so here and in several other places
this cast can be dropped.

sorry, why not "for (i = ZS_ALMOST_EMPTY; i <= ZS_ALMOST_FULL ..." ?
