About memory footprint, sizeof(list_head) might be win if we create zram dyamically
and there is few zram device in the system because IDR uses own metadata and bitmap
and so. But I don't think it's not too much if there is few device, either.
However, automatic id generation appeals more rather than memory footprint so I hope
you add it in description for someone to know why we decided idr in future.

Thanks.
