In commit dc617f29dbe5 we tried to prevent userspace programs from
writing to active swap devices.  However, it turns out that userspace
hibernation requires the ability to write the hibernation image to a
swap device, so revert the write path checks.

Fixes: dc617f29dbe5 ("vfs: don't allow writes to swap files")
