Btrfs currently does not support swap files because swap's use of bmap
does not work with copy-on-write and multiple devices. See commit
35054394c4b3 ("Btrfs: stop providing a bmap operation to avoid swapfile
corruptions"). However, the swap code has a mechanism for the filesystem
to manually add swap extents using add_swap_extent() from the
->swap_activate() aop. iomap has done this since commit 67482129cdab
("iomap: add a swapfile activation function"). Btrfs will do the same in
a later patch, so export add_swap_extent().
