Thanks for pointing this out! Will change in the next version.

Sounds good. Will do this.

I think this is used to check some software bug. For example,
SWAP_MAP_SHMEM will yield true here.

Yes. I will fix this. And we can just check it in
__swap_duplicate_locked() and all these will be covered.

Why not? This is just a one line stub.

Yes. We should correct this. Because this should go to a separate patch,
would you mind to submit a patch to fix it?

Thanks!
