kernel BUG at mm/swap_slots.c:270




Tim at al,
 I got this on my desktop at shutdown:

  ------------[ cut here ]------------
  kernel BUG at mm/swap_slots.c:270!

so there seems to be something screwy in the new swap_slots code.

Any ideas? I'm not finding other reports of this, but I'm also not
seeing why it should BUG_ON(). The "use_swap_slot_cache" thing very
much checks whether swap_slot_cache_initialized has been set, so the
BUG_ON() just seems like garbage. But please take a look.
