zcache doesn't use zsmalloc for cleancache pages today, but
that's Seth's plan for the future.  Then if there is a
separate pool for each cleancache pool, when a filesystem
is umount'ed, it isn't necessary to walk through and delete
all pages one-by-one, which could take quite awhile.

ramster needs one pool for each client (i.e. machine in the
cluster) for frontswap pages for the same reason, and
later, for cleancache pages, one per mounted filesystem
per client
