Subject: [PATCH v6] zram: break the strict dependency from lzo

>From the beginning, the zram block device always enabled CRYPTO_LZO, since
lzo-rle is hardcoded as the fallback compression algorithm. As a consequence, on
systems where another compression algorithm is chosen (e.g. CRYPTO_ZSTD), the
lzo kernel module becomes unused, while still having to be built/loaded.

This patch removes the hardcoded lzo-rle dependency and allows the user to
select the default compression algorithm for zram at build time. The previous
behaviour is kept, as the default algorithm is still lzo-rle.

Suggested-by: Sergey Senozhatsky <sergey.senozhatsky.work@...il.com>
Suggested-by: Minchan Kim <minchan@...nel.org>
Signed-off-by: Rui Salvaterra <rsalvaterra@...il.com>

v6: simplify the kconfig as per Minchan's suggestion.
v5: incorporate Minchan's feedback. Allow the user to choose a default algorithm.
v4: incorporate Sergey's feedback and fix a small typo.
v3: fix the default selection when lzo isn't present. Rebase against 5.10-rc1.
v2: fix the dependency on CRYPTO.
