Today's -next (and at least back to Friday, older logs are unclear - I
only noticed -next issues today) fails to NFS boot on an AT91SAM9G20-EK
(an old ARMv5 platform) with multi_v5_defconfig, a bisect appears to
point to this patch (20aae9eff5acd8f5 in today's -next) as the culprit.

The failure happens at some point after starting userspace, the kernel
starts spamming the console with messages in the form:

    get_swap_device: Bad swap file entry 10120d20

repeating the same entry number, though different numbers per boot.  The
system is booting a Debian userspace and shouldn't have swap configured
(I verfified that successful boots don't), though it only has 64M of RAM
so there will be some memory pressure, especially during boot.  The
exact point things fall over seems to vary a little.

A sample failing job with the full log is here:
