Subject: [PATCH 04/12] mm: Add support for a filesystem to activate swap files and use direct_IO for writing swap pages

Currently swapfiles are managed entirely by the core VM by using ->bmap
to allocate space and write to the blocks directly. This effectively
ensures that the underlying blocks are allocated and avoids the need
for the swap subsystem to locate what physical blocks store offsets
within a file.

If the swap subsystem is to use the filesystem information to locate
the blocks, it is critical that information such as block groups,
block bitmaps and the block descriptor table that map the swap file
were resident in memory. This patch adds address_space_operations that
the VM can call when activating or deactivating swap backed by a file.

  int swap_activate(struct file *);
  int swap_deactivate(struct file *);

The ->swap_activate() method is used to communicate to the
file that the VM relies on it, and the address_space should take
adequate measures such as reserving space in the underlying device,
reserving memory for mempools and pinning information such as the
block descriptor table in memory. The ->swap_deactivate() method is
called on sys_swapoff() if ->swap_activate() returned success.

After a successful swapfile ->swap_activate, the swapfile
is marked SWP_FILE and swapper_space.a_ops will proxy to
sis->swap_file->f_mappings->a_ops using ->direct_io to write swapcache
pages and ->readpage to read.

It is perfectly possible that direct_IO be used to read the swap
pages but it is an unnecessary complication. Similarly, it is possible
that ->writepage be used instead of direct_io to write the pages but
filesystem developers have stated that calling writepage from the VM
is undesirable for a variety of reasons and using direct_IO opens up
the possibility of writing back batches of swap pages in the future.
