If CONFIG_SWAP=n, it does not make much sense to offer the user the
option to enable support for swapping over NFS, as that will still fail
at run time:

    # swapon /swap
    swapon: /swap: swapon failed: Function not implemented

Fix this by adding a dependency on CONFIG_SWAP.

Fixes: a564b8f0398636ba ("nfs: enable swap on NFS")

Marked RFC, as this still doesn't seem to work.
When enabled, the kernel log is spammed with:

    [  449.371536] __swap_writepage: 413288 callbacks suppressed
    [  449.371577] Write error on dio swapfile (10047488)
    [  449.382435] Write error on dio swapfile (14147584)
    [  449.387320] Write error on dio swapfile (10919936)
    [  449.392474] Write error on dio swapfile (8945664)
    [  449.397263] Write error on dio swapfile (24256512)

    [  449.416891] Write error on dio swapfile (2007040)

Platform is 32-bit Cortex A9 with 32 MiB of RAM (hence the need for
swap).

FWIW, swap over /dev/loop0 using a file on nfsroot also doesn't work: system
hangs, but is still reponsive to ping.
