swap: prevent reuse during hibernation
Move the hibernation check from scan_swap_map() into try_to_free_swap(): to catch not only the common case when hibernation's allocation itself triggers swap reuse, but also the less likely case when concurrent page reclaim (shrink_page_list) might happen to try_to_free_swap from a page. Hibernation already clears __GFP_IO from the gfp_allowed_mask, to stop reclaim from going to swap: check that to prevent swap reuse too.
