I have received a report about the BUG_ON() in free_basic_memory_bitmaps()
triggering mysteriously during an aborted s2disk hibernation attempt.
The only way I can explain that is that /dev/snapshot was first
opened for writing (resume mode), then closed and then opened again
for reading and closed again without freezing tasks.  In that case
the first invocation of snapshot_open() would set the free_bitmaps
flag in snapshot_state, which is a static variable.  That flag
wouldn't be cleared later and the second invocation of snapshot_open()
would just leave it like that, so the subsequent snapshot_release()
would see data->frozen set and free_basic_memory_bitmaps() would be
called unnecessarily.

To prevent that from happening clear data->free_bitmaps in
snapshot_open() when the file is being opened for reading (hibernate

In addition to that, replace the BUG_ON() in free_basic_memory_bitmaps()
with a WARN_ON() as the kernel can continue just fine if the condition
checked by that macro occurs.
