The following patch changes all swap IO functions to be asynchronous by
default and changes the callers to wait when needed (except
rw_swap_page_base which will block writers if there are too many in flight
swap IOs).

Ingo's find_get_swapcache_page() does not wait on locked pages anymore,
which is now up to the callers.

time make -j32 test with 4 CPUs machine, 128M ram and 128M swap:
