Normally developers do not have backing up "production teams".

I never asked you to fix my problems. I have substantial proof that
zsmalloc is fragile enough not to be a good fit for projects I work on
and I want to have the code that allows zram to work with zbud
mainlined. Whatever you want me to do to help you fix zsmalloc issues
*should* be *orthogonal* to the former. You are abusing your
maintainer role here, trying to act in favor of your company rather
than for the benefit of OSS.
