frontswap: get rid of swap_lock dependency
Frontswap initialization routine depends on swap_lock, which want to be atomic about frontswap's first appearance. IOW, frontswap is not present and will fail all calls OR frontswap is fully functional but if new swap_info_struct isn't registered by enable_swap_info, swap subsystem doesn't start I/O so there is no race between init procedure and page I/O working on frontswap. So let's remove unnecessary swap_lock dependency.
