    Subject[PATCH] Missing include in swap.h for some architectures
    Greetings All,

    This flaw broke kernel builds configured with SWAP=n on some architectures,
    particularly alpha and ia64. Since i386 managed to include pagemap.h
    indirectly, this did not crop up there. See log for details.

    This applies to linux-2.5 BK as of 0400 UTC 10/20/2003 and passes all kinds of
    ridiculous compile tests, probably including (allyesconfig - broken stuff) on
    sparc, sparc64, ia64, alpha, and i386. Don't know about VAX...

    One could place this include within the #ifdef'ed block that contains the
    relevant function uses, but that's not generally within the style of this file
    or most others, per my recollection.

    I didn't know who takes things like this, so if anyone would like to pick this
    up, please do so. Otherwise, I will send it to Linus after a few days.

    # This patch format is intended for GNU patch command version 2.5 or higher.
    # This patch includes the following deltas:

    # The following is the BitKeeper ChangeSet Log
    # --------------------------------------------
    # 03/10/16 1.1368
    # The linux/swap.h header uses the page_cache_release and release_pages
    # functions declared in linux/pagemap.h when CONFIG_SWAP is disabled. Add
    # an include of linux/pagemap.h so swap.h finds those declarations on
    # architectures that don't include pagemap.h indirectly.
