whoops. I can't argue for its efficiency, can I?

Bah!! :( Where is a version-forwarder for this stuff? 8;)
and will it be dropped...

Your latter 2 sentences aren't related -- right?
On the 15 CPU-seconds in si_swapfile(): yes, I think
there is room for some improvement there.

|
| if (!(swap_info[i].flags & SWP_USED))

OK, I'll try it Thurs.

We'll see about that.
