    Subjectswapfile security weakeness
    Hi,
    i've found that active swapfile could be deleted, which is
    IMHO very dangerous (set immutable flag on in sys_swapon call?). Also,
    sys_swapon should check whether owner of swapfile is root and is readable
    only to root ( memory readableby anyone? hmm...)
