NFS: kswapd must not block in nfs_release_page
See https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16056 If other processes are blocked waiting for kswapd to free up some memory so that they can make progress, then we cannot allow kswapd to block on those processes. Signed-off-by: Trond Myklebust <Trond.Myklebust@netapp.com> Cc: stable@kernel.org
