Subject: [PATCH 3/3] swap: Clear si->swap_map[] in swap_free_cluster()

si->swap_map[] of the swap entries in cluster needs to be cleared
during freeing.  Previously, this is done in the caller of
swap_free_cluster().  This may cause code duplication (one user now,
will add more users later) and lock/unlock cluster unnecessarily.  In
this patch, the clearing code is moved to swap_free_cluster() to avoid
the downside.
