Swap over network

I've heard that there's some patch into kernel which makes swapping
over nfs to actually WORK. I'm not interested in nfs, but I would be
interested in its deadlock prevention. [In linux network code, it's
possible that for sending / receiving of packet you need to alloc some
memory. In case of swap "to free a memory (swap-out) you need free
memory (for outgoing packet / incoming ACK packet)". I'm looking for a
method to solve this (to write my own method of swapping over network).
