[PATCH] zram: Failing to decompress is WARN_ON worthy

From: Douglas Anderson

If we fail to decompress in zram it's a pretty serious problem. We
were entrusted to be able to decompress the old data but we failed.
Either we've got some crazy bug in the compression code or we've got
memory corruption.

At the moment, when this happens the log looks like this:

ERR kernel: [ 1833.099861] zram: Decompression failed! err=-22, page=336112
ERR kernel: [ 1833.099881] zram: Decompression failed! err=-22, page=336112
ALERT kernel: [ 1833.099886] Read-error on swap-device (253:0:2688896)

It is true that we have an "ALERT" level log in there, but (at least
to me) it feels like even this isn't enough to impart the seriousness
of this error. Let's convert to a WARN_ON. Note that WARN_ON is
automatically "unlikely" so we can simply replace the old annotation
with the new one.
