mm: reuse unused swap entry if necessary
Presently we can know a swap entry is just used as SwapCache via swap_map, without looking up swap cache. Then, we have a chance to reuse swap-cache-only swap entries in get_swap_pages(). This patch tries to free swap-cache-only swap entries if swap is not enough. Note: We hit following path when swap_cluster code cannot find a free cluster. Then, vm_swap_full() is not only condition to allow the kernel to reclaim unused swap.
