mm: add_to_swap_cache() must not sleep
After commit 355cfa73 ("mm: modify swap_map and add SWAP_HAS_CACHE flag"), read_swap_cache_async() will busy-wait while a entry doesn't exist in swap cache but it has SWAP_HAS_CACHE flag. Such entries can exist on add/delete path of swap cache. On add path, add_to_swap_cache() is called soon after SWAP_HAS_CACHE flag is set, and on delete path, swapcache_free() will be called (SWAP_HAS_CACHE flag is cleared) soon after __delete_from_swap_cache() is called. So, the busy-wait works well in most cases. But this mechanism can cause soft lockup if add_to_swap_cache() sleeps and read_swap_cache_async() tries to swap-in the same entry on the same cpu. This patch calls radix_tree_preload() before swapcache_prepare() and divides add_to_swap_cache() into two part: radix_tree_preload() part and radix_tree_insert() part(define it as __add_to_swap_cache()).
