mm, frontswap: convert frontswap_enabled to static key
I have noticed that frontswap.h first declares "frontswap_enabled" as extern bool variable, and then overrides it with "#define frontswap_enabled (1)" for CONFIG_FRONTSWAP=Y or (0) when disabled. The bool variable isn't actually instantiated anywhere. This all looks like an unfinished attempt to make frontswap_enabled reflect whether a backend is instantiated. But in the current state, all frontswap hooks call unconditionally into frontswap.c just to check if frontswap_ops is non-NULL. This should at least be checked inline, but we can further eliminate the overhead when CONFIG_FRONTSWAP is enabled and no backend registered, using a static key that is initially disabled, and gets enabled only upon first backend registration. Thus, checks for "frontswap_enabled" are replaced with "frontswap_enabled()" wrapping the static key check. There are two exceptions: - xen's selfballoon_process() was testing frontswap_enabled in code guarded by #ifdef C...
