Subject: [PATCH 1/3] common/rc: Make swapon check in _require_scratch_swapfile() specific to btrfs

swapon/off check in _require_scratch_swapfile() was specifically added
for btrfs[1]/[2] since in previous kernels, swapfile was not supported on btrfs.
This rather masks the issue sometimes with swapon system call in
case if it fails.
for e.g. in latest ext4 upstream tree when "-g quick" (which ran swap tests too)
was tested, all swap tests resulted into "_notrun" since swapon failed
inside _require_scratch_swapfile() itself.
Whereas this failure on ext4 was actually due to a regression with latest
fast-commit patch, which went un-noticed.
Hence make this swapon/off check only specific to btrfs.
Tested default config of xfs/btrfs/ext4/f2fs with this patch.

With this change on buggy kernel, we could clearly catch the swap failures.
