Subject[PATCH 10/10] Avoid dereferencing bd_disk during swap_entry_free for network storage
Date
Commit [b3a27d: swap: Add swap slot free callback to
block_device_operations] dereferences p->bdev->bd_disk but this is a
NULL dereference if using swap-over-NFS. This patch checks SWP_BLKDEV
on the swap_info_struct before dereferencing.
