Actually lzo compresses better but they are both fast. lz4 is faster
on embedded devices.

zram-swap should use lz4 if available and the patch can be as it

<mangix> lz4 has compression levels. in any case, speed > size on
embedded devices. interestingly enough, higher lz4 compression yields
faster decompression

They are mostly the same. On average 2.8 compression ratio in lz4 vs
3.0 in lzo. Can't hurt to go with the fastest.
