[PATCH v3] zram: fix pool name truncation

From: Sergey Senozhatsky
Date: Wed Aug 12 2015 - 09:33:27 EST

zram_meta_alloc() constructs a pool name for zs_create_pool() call
snprintf(pool_name, sizeof(pool_name), "zram%d", device_id);

However, it defines pool name buffer to be only 8 bytes long
(minus trailing zero), which means that we can have only 1000
pool names: zram0 -- zram999.

With CONFIG_ZSMALLOC_STAT enabled an attempt to create a device
zram1000 can fail if device zram100 already exists, because
snprintf() will truncate new pool name to zram100 and pass it
debugfs_create_dir(), causing:

debugfs dir <zram100> creation failed
zram: Error creating memory pool

... and so on.

Fix it by passing zram->disk->disk_name to zram_meta_alloc()
instead of divice_id. We construct zram%d name earlier and
keep it as a ->disk_name, no need to snprintf() it again.
