Subject[RFC 10/11] mm, THP, swap: Support to split THP in swap cache
Date
From: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com>

This patch enhanced the split_huge_page_to_list() to work properly for
THP (Transparent Huge Page) in swap cache during swapping out.

This is used for delaying splitting THP during swapping out. Where for
a THP to be swapped out, we will allocate a swap cluster, add the THP
into the swap cache, then split the THP. The page lock will be held
during this process. So in the code path other than swapping out, if
the THP need to be split, the PageSwapCache(THP) will be always false.
