Can you turn this into a dangerous-group fstest, please?

Does the same reasoning apply to upstream?

The swapfile might not be empty, it's just that we couldn't find even a
single page's worth of contiguous space in the whole file.  I would
suggest:

	/*
	 * If this swapfile doesn't contain even a single page-aligned
	 * contiguous range of blocks, reject this useless swapfile to
	 * prevent confusion later on.
	 */
	if (isi.nr_pages == 0) {
		pr_warn("swapon: Cannot find a single usable page in file.\n");
		return -EINVAL;
	}
