Sometimes, we want to know whether a module is loaded or unloaded
from the log.

This patch adds some log.

Why?  What's special about zsmalloc?

Please provide much better justification than this.

When I debug with the zsmalloc module built in kernel.
After system boots up, I did not see:
/sys/kernel/debug/zsmalloc dir.

Although the reason for this is that I made a mistake. I
forgot to add debugfs entry in /etc/fstab.
But I think it is suitable to add information for a module load/unload.
Then we can get this by:
dmesg | grep zsmalloc.

Thanks.

I understand your trouble but it's general problem, not zsmalloc specific.
Then, if you really want to fix, you should approach more generic ways.

Thanks.
