[PATCH 03/11] frontswap: Remove the check for frontswap_enabled.

From: Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk
Date: Fri Feb 15 2013 - 15:21:36 EST

With the support for loading of backends as modules (see for example:
"staging: zcache: enable zcache to be built/loaded as a module"), the
frontswap_enabled is always set to true ("mm: frontswap: lazy
initialization to allow tmem backends to build/run as modules").

The next patch "frontswap: Use static_key instead of frontswap_enabled and
frontswap_ops" is are going to convert the frontswap_enabled to be a bit more
selective and be on/off depending on whether the backend has registered - and
not whether the frontswap API is enabled.

The two functions: frontswap_init and frontswap_invalidate_area
can be called anytime - they queue up which of the swap devices are
active and can use the frontswap API - once the backend is loaded.

As such there is no need to check for 'frontswap_enabled' at all.
