Are you still running 2.4.0-pre? Can you reproduce the problem? Does
the problem occur only with v4l? Did you back up your files?

BTW, while spelunking the swap code I noticed this oddity:

pte_t pte_mkdirty(pte_t pte) { (pte).pte_low |= _PAGE_DIRTY; return
pte; }

and similarly for 10 or so other functions - these functions just return
the passed pte, and reassign it to the pte orginally passed. :-/ This
dates from version 1.2.13.
