Subject[PATCH -mm 1/3] mm: add a new function (needed for swap suspend)
Date
This patch adds the function get_swap_page_of_type() allowing us to
specify an index in swap_info[] and select a swap_info_struct
structure to be used for allocating a swap page.

This function (or another one of similar functionality) will be necessary for
implementing the image-writing part of swsusp in the user space.  It can also
be used for simplifying the current in-kernel implementation of the
image-writing part of swsusp.
