This was introduced by Mike in a previous patch. The zstrm is only
accessed while the spinlock is held.

zram_lock_table() is bit_spin_lock() on !RT and spin_lock(&table->lock);
on RT. So this is done.
!RT has this running in a kmap_atomic() section so they have no
preemption there.
zcomp_stream_get() returns a per-CPU object which is protected with a
spinlock and only accessed locked.
