                 Summary: /proc/meminfo says swap is full when it's not

I've logged in to strauss.debian.net and checked the memory status:

pochu@strauss:~$ cat /proc/meminfo | grep Swap
SwapCached:     0 kB
SwapTotal:      1959892 kB
SwapFree:       0 kB
pochu@strauss:~$ vmstat | grep swap
swap size:      1.87G
swap free:      1.86G

So meminfo says the swap is full, but vmstat says it's empty. I've checked my
Hurd virtual machine right after boot and I got similar results, so meminfo is
most likely wrong.
