    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.
