swapfile: avoid dereferencing bd_disk during swap_entry_free for network storage

Commit b3a27d ("swap: Add swap slot free callback to
block_device_operations") dereferences p->bdev->bd_disk but this is a NULL
dereference if using swap-over-NFS.  This patch checks SWP_BLKDEV on the
swap_info_struct before dereferencing.

With reference to this callback, Christoph Hellwig stated "Please just
remove the callback entirely.  It has no user outside the staging tree and
was added clearly against the rules for that staging tree".  This would
also be my preference but there was not an obvious way of keeping zram in
staging/ happy.
