My bad, did not update the last patch with required lists (will fix).

Both set of definitions suggest that the last three bits (if present)
on the PTE will be discarded during PTE->SWP->PTE conversion which
might be leading to this mismatch and subsequent failure.

arch/powerpc/include/asm/nohash/32/pgtable.h
arch/powerpc/include/asm/book3s/32/pgtable.h

#define __pte_to_swp_entry(pte) ((swp_entry_t) { pte_val(pte) >> 3 })
#define __swp_entry_to_pte(x) ((pte_t) { (x).val << 3 })

Also there are some more architectures (microblaze, sh, etc) where these
conversions are not always preserving. On powerpc64, it sets back _PAGE_PTE
irrespective of whether the bit was originally set or not.

Probably it is wrong to expect that PTE->SWP->PTE conversion will be always
preserving. So wondering if it is worth changing this test to accommodate
all such architectures or just drop it instead.

Cool, that is good to know.
