SubjectRe: patch for 2.1.102 swap code
   Date: 	Sun, 24 May 1998 18:28:48 +0100
From: "Stephen C. Tweedie" <sct@dcs.ed.ac.uk>

The __get_free_page() may block, however, and in a threaded
environment this will cause the loss of user data plus a memory
leak if two threads hit this race. However, I don't think it's
related to the current writable cached page problems.

The mmap semaphore is held, it cannot happen.
