The problem is that zsmalloc is being built as a module and zcache is
builtin.  It seems that because CRYPTO=m, kbuild is forcing zsmalloc
to be built, just not forcing it to be builtin.

The zcache Kconfig has:
	bool "Dynamic compression of swap pages and clean pagecache pages"
	depends on (CLEANCACHE || FRONTSWAP) && CRYPTO && X86
	select ZSMALLOC
	select CRYPTO_LZO

Seems to be a nuance of kbuild I didn't know before.  If a
"selected by" (sub)condition is met, if any of the conditionals are
built as modules, then the entry can be built as a module.

For example, if zsmalloc is selected by:
...(CLEANCACHE [=y] || FRONTSWAP [=n]) && CRYPTO [=m] && X86 [=y]
then it can be built as a module or builtin.

If zsmalloc is selected by:
...(CLEANCACHE [=y] || FRONTSWAP [=n]) && CRYPTO [=y] && X86 [=y]
then it must be builtin.

One fix is this:

diff --git a/drivers/staging/zcache/Kconfig b/drivers/staging/zcache/Kconfig
index 3ed2c8f..7048e01 100644
--- a/drivers/staging/zcache/Kconfig
+++ b/drivers/staging/zcache/Kconfig
@@ -2,7 +2,7 @@ config ZCACHE
        bool "Dynamic compression of swap pages and clean pagecache pages"
        # X86 dependency is because zsmalloc uses non-portable pte/tlb
        # functions
-       depends on (CLEANCACHE || FRONTSWAP) && CRYPTO && X86
+       depends on (CLEANCACHE || FRONTSWAP) && CRYPTO=y && X86
        select ZSMALLOC
        select CRYPTO_LZO
        default n

I think this is the best way since ZCACHE is a bool and CRYPTO is the only
one of the dependencies that is a tristate.  This forces both ZSMALLOC and
CRYPTO_LZO to be builtin if ZCACHE is selected.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
Seth
