[PATCH 577/577] Staging: ramzswap: Handler for swap slot free callback

From: Nitin Gupta <ngupta at vflare.org>

Install handler for swap_slot_free_notify callback which is called
when a swap slot is no longer used. This handler immediately frees
memory allocated corresponding to the given swap slot.
