mm/zpool: use prefixed module loading

To avoid potential format string expansion via module parameters, do not
use the zpool type directly in request_module() without a format string.
Additionally, to avoid arbitrary modules being loaded via zpool API
(e.g.  via the zswap_zpool_type module parameter) add a "zpool-" prefix
to the requested module, as well as module aliases for the existing
zpool types (zbud and zsmalloc).
