Subject: [PATCH 3/3] mm/swapfile.c: count won't be bigger than SWAP_MAP_MAX

When the condition is true, there are two possibilities:

   1. count == SWAP_MAP_BAD
   2. count == (SWAP_MAP_MAX & COUNT_CONTINUED) == SWAP_MAP_SHMEM

The first case would be filtered by the first if in __swap_duplicate().

And the second case means this swap entry is for shmem. Since we never
do another duplication for shmem swap entry. This won't happen neither.
