    The following problems have been fixed:

    - Page cache flaws: swapoff does no longer crash on sys5 memory
    - Swap cache race: I believe Bill's patch should be integrated
    _now_... It has worked for a _long_ time and it is correct.
    - swap deadlock: I saw a fix for this, a few hours ago. It
    will probably be submitted this weekend.
    - swapoff deadlock: Well, it says that the patch was posted. I
    read the patch too, and it looks suspiciously correct to me :)

    There's also a separate TODO list for the Linux MM team,
    it's on

    I will include the MM things from your page RSN.
    (mlock, swap cache counters, PGE handling, LDT allocation
    and the mmap security stuff weren't there yet)
