Actually zram_index_mutex isn't needed when calling zram_remove_cb()
since the zram-control sysfs interface has been removed, so userspace
can't add new device any more, then the issue is supposed to be fixed
by the following one line change, please test it:

diff --git a/drivers/block/zram/zram_drv.c b/drivers/block/zram/zram_drv.c
