Subject: [PATCH 08/19] swim: don't call blk_register_region

The swim driver (unlike various other floppy drivers) doesn't have
magic device nodes for certain modes, and already registers a gendisk
for each of the floppies supported by a device.  Thus the region
registered is a no-op and can be removed.
