Do as Trond suggested:
  http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/8/25/348

Disable NFS data cache revalidation on swap files since it doesn't really 
make sense to have other clients change the file while you are using it.

Thereby we can stop setting PG_private on swap pages, since there ought to
be no further races with invalidate_inode_pages2() to deal with.

And since we cannot set PG_private we cannot use page->private (which is
already used by PG_swapcache pages anyway) to store the nfs_page. Thus
augment the new nfs_page_find_request logic.
