[PATCH] SwapMig: add_to_swap() avoid atomic allocations
Add gfp_mask to add_to_swap add_to_swap does allocations with GFP_ATOMIC in order not to interfere with swapping. During migration we may have use add_to_swap extensively which may lead to out of memory errors. This patch makes add_to_swap take a parameter that specifies the gfp mask. The page migration code can then make add_to_swap use GFP_KERNEL.
