vmscan: free swap space on swap-in/activation
If vm_swap_full() (swap space more than 50% full), the system will free swap space at swapin time. With this patch, the system will also free the swap space in the pageout code, when we decide that the page is not a candidate for swapout (and just wasting swap space).
