Subject: [PATCH 8/8] vfs: update swap_{,de}activate documentation

Parameters were added to swap_activate in the same patch series that
introduced it without updating the documentation. Additionally, the
documentation claims that non-existent address space operations
swap_{in,out} are used for swap I/O, but it's (now) direct_IO.
