Subject[ 37/94] swap: dont do discard if no discard option added
3.3-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Shaohua Li <shli@kernel.org>

commit 052b1987faca3606109d88d96bce124851f7c4c2 upstream.

When swapon() was not passed the SWAP_FLAG_DISCARD option, sys_swapon()
will still perform a discard operation. This can cause problems if
discard is slow or buggy.

Reverse the order of the check so that a discard operation is performed
only if the sys_swapon() caller is attempting to enable discard.
