[PATCH] Direct Migration V9: PageSwapCache checks
Check for PageSwapCache after looking up and locking a swap page. The page migration code may change a swap pte to point to a different page under lock_page(). If that happens then the vm must retry the lookup operation in the swap space to find the correct page number. There are a couple of locations in the VM where a lock_page() is done on a swap page. In these locations we need to check afterwards if the page was migrated. If the page was migrated then the old page that was looked up before was freed and no longer has the PageSwapCache bit set.
