    Sorry for the delay in replying.

    I don't mind if you don't leave swap_info_struct in
    include/linux/swap.h. I'm currently reworking my swap support anyway,
    adding support for honouring the priority field. I've also recently
    learned that under some circumstances, allocating all available swap can
    take quite a while (I have a user who is hibernating with 32GB of RAM!),
    so I've been thinking about what I can do to optimise that.
