Subject: RE: [PATCH] zsmalloc: do not use bit_spin_lock

As long as the memory is still there, we can kmap it by its page struct. But if
it is not there anymore, we have no way.

So zs_map_object() will guarantee the src won't be moved by holding those preemption-disabled lock?
If so, it seems we have to drop the MOVABLE gfp in zswap for zsmalloc case?
