Subject[PATCH] mm: Save soft-dirty bits on swapped pages
Andy Lutomirski reported that in case if a page with _PAGE_SOFT_DIRTY
bit set get swapped out, the bit is getting lost and no longer
available when pte read back.

To resolve this we introduce _PTE_SWP_SOFT_DIRTY bit which is
saved in pte entry for the page being swapped out. When such page
is to be read back from a swap cache we check for bit presence
and if it's there we clear it and restore the former _PAGE_SOFT_DIRTY
bit back.

One of the problem was to find a place in pte entry where we can
save the _PTE_SWP_SOFT_DIRTY bit while page is in swap. The
_PAGE_PSE was chosen for that, it doesn't intersect with swap
entry format stored in pte.

While I've intensively tested this patch on x86-64/32 I would
really appreciate detailed review, to be sure I've not missed
places where borrowing _PAGE_PSE bit for own needs doesn't
cause any problems. Thanks!
