Subject: [PATCH -mm -v3 04/12] mm, THP, swap: Don't allocate huge cluster for file backed swap device

From: Huang Ying <ying.huang@...el.com>

It's hard to write a whole transparent huge page (THP) to a file
backed swap device during swapping out and the file backed swap device
isn't very popular.  So the huge cluster allocation for the file
backed swap device is disabled.
