There's no more preloading in the XArray world, so this can just be dropped.

I'm not entirely happy about -ENOTDIR being overloaded to mean this.
Maybe we can return a new enum rather than an errno?

Also, I'm not sure that a true/false parameter is the right approach for
"is this a huge page". I think we'll have usecases for swap entries which
are both larger and smaller than PMD_SIZE.

I was hoping to encode the swap entry size into the entry; we only need one
extra bit to do that (no matter the size of the entry). I detailed the
encoding scheme here:

(let me know if that doesn't work for you; I'm not very experienced with
this G+ thing)
