Subject[PATCH] fs, mm: fix race in unlinking swapfile
We had a recurring situation in which admin procedures setting up
swapfiles would race with test preparation clearing away swapfiles;
and just occasionally that got stuck on a swapfile "(deleted)" which
could never be swapped off. That is not supposed to be possible.

2.6.28 commit f9454548e17c ("don't unlink an active swapfile") admitted
that it was leaving a race window open: now close it.

may_delete() makes the IS_SWAPFILE check (amongst many others) before
inode_lock has been taken on target: now repeat just that simple check
in vfs_unlink() and vfs_rename(), after taking inode_lock.

Which goes most of the way to fixing the race, but swapon() must also
check after it acquires inode_lock, that the file just opened has not
already been unlinked.

Fixes: f9454548e17c ("don't unlink an active swapfile")
