Another VM improvement causes the system to free a page's swap space after that page is brought back into RAM; this effectively increases the amount of swap available on the system.
I remember hearing about the swap cache waaaaay back when (2.0 or earlier). Granted, the VM's changed a lot since then. So, with this change, is the swap cache going away?
