The build error is caused by macros which are defined in swap.h.

I worry about the effects of the patch - I don't know which of swap.h
and pagemap.h is the "innermost" header file. There's potential for
new build errors due to strange inclusion graphs.

err, there's also this, in swap.h:

/* only sparc can not include linux/pagemap.h in this file
* so leave page_cache_release and release_pages undeclared... */
It would be safer to convert free_page_and_swap_cache() and
free_pages_and_swap_cache() into out-of-line C functions. Or to
explicitly include pagemap.h into the offending .c files.
