SubjectDoes linux locks swap file?
Date
From
	Hello.

If I've understood sys_swapon() correctly, there is no increment
of inode's usage counter if swapping goes to regular file. If this
assumption is correct, it is definitely a bug. If it is wrong, please
tell me why :)

This was inspired by report of someone who was able to crash
system just by removing active swap file.
