zlib: slim down zlib_deflate() workspace when possible
Instead of always creating a huge (268K) deflate_workspace with the maximum compression parameters (windowBits=15, memLevel=8), allow the caller to obtain a smaller workspace by specifying smaller parameter values. For example, when capturing oops and panic reports to a medium with limited capacity, such as NVRAM, compression may be the only way to capture the whole report. In this case, a small workspace (24K works fine) is a win, whether you allocate the workspace when you need it (i.e., during an oops or panic) or at boot time. I've verified that this patch works with all accepted values of windowBits (positive and negative), memLevel, and compression level.
