Ah yes, thanks :)

Will do.

We are freeing the entire tree here. try_to_unuse() in the swapoff
syscall should have already emptied the tree, but this is here for
completeness.

rb_erase() will do things like rebalancing the tree; something that
just wastes time since we are in the process of freeing the whole
tree. We are holding the tree lock here so we are sure that no one
else is accessing the tree while it is in this transient broken state.

Thanks,
Seth
