Subject: [PATCH v2 7/7] zram: Use local lock to protect per-CPU data

From: Mike Galbraith <umgwanakikbuti@...il.com>

The zcomp driver uses per-CPU compression. The per-CPU data pointer is
acquired with get_cpu_ptr() which implicitly disables preemption.
It allocates memory inside the preempt disabled region which conflicts
with the PREEMPT_RT semantics.

Replace the implicit preemption control with an explicit local lock.
This allows RT kernels to substitute it with a real per CPU lock, which
serializes the access but keeps the code section preemptible. On non RT
kernels this maps to preempt_disable() as before, i.e. no functional
change.

[bigeasy: Use local_lock(), description, drop reordering]
