tmpfs: convert shmem_writepage and enable swap
Convert shmem_writepage() to use shmem_delete_from_page_cache() to use shmem_radix_tree_replace() to substitute swap entry for page pointer atomically in the radix tree. As with shmem_add_to_page_cache(), it's not entirely satisfactory to be copying such code from delete_from_swap_cache, but again judged easier to sell than making its other callers go through the extras. Remove the toy implementation's shmem_put_swap() and shmem_get_swap(), now unreferenced, and the hack to disable swap: it's now good to go. The way things have worked out, info->lock no longer helps to guard the shmem_swaplist: we increment swapped under shmem_swaplist_mutex only. That global mutex exclusion between shmem_writepage() and shmem_unuse() is not pretty, and we ought to find another way; but it's been forced on us by recent race discoveries, not a consequence of this patchset. And what has become of the WARN_ON_ONCE(1) free_swap_and_cache() if a swap entry was found already present? That's no longer possible, the (unknown) one inserting this page into filecache would hit the swap entry occupying that slot.
