Hi Rui,

I don't understand it. Please see below.  ZRAM_COMP_LZO_DEF select
CRYPTO_LZO, not relying on it. If system supports other CRYPTO module
it will show on choice list. Otherwise, default lzo will be always
there and select CRYPTO_LZO.

Do I miss your point?

+       prompt "zram default compressor"
+       default ZRAM_COMP_LZO_DEF
+       depends on ZRAM || CRYPTO_LZ4
+       help
+         a
+       bool "lzo"
+       select CRYPTO_LZO
+       help
+         b
+       bool "lz4"
+       depends on CRYPTO_LZ4
+       help
+         c
+       string
+       default "lzo" if ZRAM_COMP_LZO_DEF
+       default "lz4" if ZRAM_COMP_LZ4_DEF
