Subject[PATCH] swapon: fix vfree() badness
Date
From: Dave Chinner <dchinner@redhat.com>

The cluster_info structure is allocated with kvzalloc(), which can
return kmalloc'd or vmalloc'd memory. It must be paired with
kvfree(), but sys_swapon uses vfree(), resultin in this warning
from xfstests generic/357:

Fix this as well as the memory leak caused by a missing kvfree(frontswap_map) in
the error handling code.
