Description Rik van Riel 2012-04-11 11:03:37 EDT
Description of problem:

The swap token code upstream has been broken for a while (due to the code around it changing), is incompatible with cgroups and has the potential to introduce a scalability problem.

Time to remove it.
Comment 1 Rik van Riel 2012-04-11 11:04:41 EDT
Merged in -mm yesterday, will track to make sure we get the removal in the RHEL7 codebase too.
Comment 2 Rik van Riel 2012-10-09 16:26:04 EDT
The swap token code is gone upstream, and in the current RHEL7 git tree.
