OK, I don't think it's the same.

we used to have

	struct zram_meta *zram_meta_alloc()
	{
		meta->table = vzalloc()
		meta->mem_pool = zs_create_pool();
		return meta;
	}


	disksize_store()
	{
		meta = zram_meta_alloc();
		if (init_done(zram)) {
			pr_info("Cannot change disksize for initialized device\n");
			goto out_destroy_comp;
		}

		zram->meta = meta;
		^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
	}

now we have

	struct zram_meta *zram_meta_alloc()
	{
		zram->table = vzalloc()
		zram->mem_pool = zs_create_pool();
		return true;
	}


	disksize_store()
	{
		zram_meta_alloc();
		^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
		if (init_done(zram)) {
			pr_info("Cannot change disksize for initialized device\n");
			goto out_destroy_comp;
		}
	}


by the time we call init_done(zram) on already init device zram->table
and zram->mem_pool are overwritten and lost. right?

we still have several zram_meta_FOO() left overs in zram_drv.c
