Hmm. This can be a real issue. Unless I'm missing something.

So... I might be wrong, but the way I see the bug report is:

When we link objects during zspage init, we do the following:

	while ((off += class->size) < PAGE_SIZE) {
		link->next = freeobj++ << OBJ_TAG_BITS;
		link += class->size / sizeof(*link);
	}

Note that we increment the link first, link += class->size / sizeof(*link),
and check for the offset only afterwards. So by the time we break out of
the while-loop the link *might* point to the partial object which starts at
the last page of zspage, but *never* ends, because we don't have next_page
in current zspage. So that's why that object should not be linked in,
because it's not a valid allocates object - we simply don't have space
for it anymore.

zspage [      page 1     ][      page 2      ]
        ...............................link
	                                   [..###]

therefore the last object must be "link - 1" for such cases.

I think, the following change can also do the trick:

	while ((off + class->size) < PAGE_SIZE) {
		link->next = freeobj++ << OBJ_TAG_BITS;
		link += class->size / sizeof(*link);
		off += class->size;
	}

Once again, I might be wrong on this.
Any thoughts?
