mm: do not call frontswap_init() during swapoff
The call to frontswap_init() was added within enable_swap_info(), which was called not only during sys_swapon, but also to reinsert the swap_info into the swap_list in case of failure of try_to_unuse() within sys_swapoff. This means that frontswap_init() might be called more than once for the same swap area. While as far as I could see no frontswap implementation has any problem with it (and in fact, all the ones I found ignore the parameter passed to frontswap_init), this could change in the future. To prevent future problems, move the call to frontswap_init() to outside the code shared between sys_swapon and sys_swapoff.
