Subject[GIT PULL] vfs: prohibit writes to active swap devices
Hi Linus,

Please pull this short series that prevents writes to active swap files
and swap devices. There's no non-malicious use case for allowing
userspace to scribble on storage that the kernel thinks it owns.

The branch merges cleanly against this morning's HEAD and survived an
overnight run of xfstests. The merge was completely straightforward, so
please let me know if you run into anything weird.

--D
