It's a tremendously good performance improvement. It's also a
tremendously large patchset :(

And it depends upon your
mm-swap-fix-race-between-swapoff-and-some-swap-operations.patch and
mm-fix-race-between-swapoff-and-mincore.patch, the first of which has
been floating about since February without adequate review.

I'll give this patchset a spin in -mm to see what happens and will come
back later to take a closer look. But the best I can do at this time
is to hopefully cc some possible reviewers :)
