SubjectRe: 2.4.10 swap behaviour (with vm-tweaks-2)

You really want to apply vm-tweaks-1, (or better vm-tweaks-2 inlined
here with the bugfix for Cary's div by zero, woops) and try again. It
applies cleanly to vanilla 2.4.10.

Linus I'd suggest for inclusion, I know you hate it but think at least
at the huge benefit in light vm-pressure load when just heavy non-mapped
cache pollution is going on, even if you disagree about the
pageout-trigger condition (but swapout behaviour is much better too this
way, and I disagree in constantly wasting cpu to know when to swap
anyways).

(btw, after this patch we can also drop the "survive" cruft into the
page fault handler, not included here since not very important cleanup)
