@Rik great! Please pass it to KerrekSB under his original post, he is the author (I posted it as an answer here only because he refused to do so).

@KerrekSB it's your pity - you could have gained 50rep had you posted your answer; now the bounty will go waste. You have 10 minutes.

@KerrekSB, seems like minor problem. Maybe you are touching memory area which is not mapped? Anyway I think your answer deserves the bounty :) PS: the unswap seems much slower than it could be, compared to HDD speed. Seems that the bottleneck is somewhere else, but where?

I told @KerrekSB to post his answer here. Greg, Kerrek, I also got lots of errors "Failed to read one byte from 0x....000, error 299 (0 bytes read)." But the tool works as a charm!!! So Greg I think it works, what do you think?

I am afraid that you are answering completely different question. Giving process process a memory priority is different task, probably useless in the context OP and me sketched out: when you already have a process that is in swap and want to unswap it. You don't want to prevent it from going to swap.

This is would be very useful! From the users' point of view, it is annoying to wait for the swapped off process after each click or user action. It would be much better to say: "unswap this process!", go for a coffee and return to a responsive system!

I must admit your solution with the sleep is probably the best, better than mine with split and xargs. +1

However this certainly brings nothing better compared to the OP's solution.
