yes, we have a "go and read docs" warning. documentation explains it in details.
so I think one warning is enough.

I didn't want it to be tooooooooooooooo long (and still don't want).
"Documentation/blockdev/zram.txt" is not a path which a regular user
can just copy-paste and use to access the documentation. so I'd prefer
to keep it as "See zram documentation".

How about this? (well, a multi-line string.)
