Umm... it's kind of the whole point of the whole thing: every sector on the source is written exactly the same on the destination.

You don't; drivers are specific to the kernel they were compiled with.

comment ZRAM vs. regular swap partition
@MadHatter, when the kernel swaps data out to the zram device, it then compresses that data and keeps it in ram. It can not then be swapped out again ( to disk or otherwise ). zcache is kind of a better solution than zram. The one thing zram can do that zcache can't is run without any on disk swap. Lowering the swappiness value sacrifices the disk cache in favor of NOT swapping, which kind of defeats the purpose of zram. If anything, I'd turn it up.

comment Where are cron logs stored on Ubuntu 14.04?
crond mails the owner of the job, not necessarily root, so if it is your own job you installed with crontab -e then you get the mail. This is also true whether or not the job "fails"... it simply emails you a transcript of any output the job had.
