swapfile: avoid NULL pointer dereference in swapon when s_bdev is NULL
While testing Swap over NFS patchset, I noticed an oops that was triggered during swapon. Investigating further, the NULL pointer deference is due to the SSD device check/optimization in the swapon code that assumes s_bdev could never be NULL. inode->i_sb->s_bdev could be NULL in a few cases. For e.g. one such case is loopback NFS mount, there could be others as well. Fix this by ensuring s_bdev is not NULL before we try to deference s_bdev.
