parentzswap: clear compressor or zpool param if invalid at init (diff)
zswap: don't param_set_charp while holding spinlock
Change the zpool/compressor param callback function to release the zswap_pools_lock spinlock before calling param_set_charp, since that function may sleep when it calls kmalloc with GFP_KERNEL. While this problem has existed for a while, I wasn't able to trigger it using a tight loop changing either/both the zpool and compressor params; I think it's very unlikely to be an issue on the stable kernels, especially since most zswap users will change the compressor and/or zpool from sysfs only one time each boot - or zero times, if they add the params to the kernel boot.
