Commit message:

Previously, swap_pager_copy() freed swap blocks one at at time, via
swp_pager_meta_ctl(), with no opportunity to recognize freeing of
consecutive blocks and free fewer block ranges. To open that opportunity,
this change removes the SWM_FREE option from swp_pager_meta_ctl(), and
compels the caller to do the freeing when a valid block address is returned.
In swap_pager_copy(), these frees are aggregated, so that a sequence of them
can be done at one time.

The only other caller to swp_pager_meta_ctl() that passed SWM_FREE,
swp_pager_unswapped(), is also modified to handle its single free
