    Two questions:
    1 - what is the memory use impact on the system which don't do swap over
    NFS, such as embedded systems, and
    2 - what is the advantage of this code over the two existing network
    swap approaches, swapping to NFS mounted file and swap to NBD device?

    I've used the NFS file when a program was running out of memory and that
    seemed to work, people in UNYUUG have reported that the nbd swap works,
    so what's better here?
