Subject[PATCH v4 9/9] mm/swap: Skip readahead only when swap slot cache is enabled
Date
From: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com>

Because during swap off, a swap entry may have swap_map[] ==
SWAP_HAS_CACHE (for example, just allocated). If we return NULL in
__read_swap_cache_async(), the swap off will abort. So when swap slot
cache is disabled, (for swap off), we will wait for page to be put
into swap cache in such race condition. This should not be a problem
for swap slot cache, because swap slot cache should be drained after
clearing swap_slot_cache_enabled.
