Sure. Unless there are some build errors after some other refactoring.

page_swapcount() and swp_swapcount() for a normal swap entry is the
number of PTE swap mapping to the normal swap entry.

cluster_swapcount() for a huge swap entry (or huge swap cluster) is the
number of PMD swap mapping to the huge swap entry.

Originally, cluster_count is the reference count of the swap entries in
the swap cluster (that is, how many entries are in use). Now, it is the
sum of the reference count of the swap entries in the swap cluster and
the number of PMD swap mapping to the huge swap entry.

I need to add comments for this at least.

Huang, Ying
