I have some updates before the weekend. There are two experimental groups:

* My patch that removes the SWP_SYNCHRONOUS_IO flag. There are 704
machines in this group across 5 datacenters with cumulative uptime of
916 days.
* Minchan's patch to remove swap_slot_free_notify. There are 376
machines in this group across 3 datacenters with cumulative uptime of
240 days.

Our machines take a couple of hours to start swapping anything after
boot, and I discounted these two hours from the cumulative uptime.

Neither of these two groups experienced unexpected coredumps or
rocksdb corruptions.

I think at this point it's reasonable to proceed with Minchan's patch
(including a backport).
