    Errr... Yeah, I guess I'll take your word for it, because I can't
    follow that code at all 8(. I see that try_to_swap_out() does an
    unlock without a lock anywhere in sight, but I can't see the path
    between this and swap_out_mm().

    Please: am I too stupid to understand this, or is the code a
    convoluted mess?
