Bug Description

dmesg says:
init: zram-config pre-start process (1047) terminated with status 2

sudo service zram-config start works though.

the whole dmesg reads:
[ 5.381143] zram: num_devices not specified. Using default: 1
[ 5.381145] zram: Creating 1 devices ...
...
[ 21.605734] Adding 1011288k swap on /dev/zram0. Priority:5 extents:1 across:1011288k SS
[ 21.606373] init: zram-config pre-start process (1047) terminated with status 2

num_devices should get calculated in the upstart script. The size is correct in that it's the same when started manually.
