SubjectRe: [PATCH 22/28] mm: add support for non block device backed swap files
From
Date
Starting review in the middle, because this is the part I'm most
familiar with.

> New addres_space_operations methods are added:
> int swapfile(struct address_space *, int);

Separate ->swapon() and ->swapoff() methods would be so much cleaner IMO.

Also is there a reason why 'struct file *' cannot be supplied to these
functions?

This ifdef is not really needed. Just require ->set_page_dirty() be
filled in by filesystems which want swapfiles (and others too, in the
longer term, the fallback is just historical crud).

Here's an incremental patch addressing these issues and beautifying
the new code.
