cgroup_throttle_swaprate() is a NoOp when CONFIG_MEMCG=n (see:
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/include/linux/swap.h#L699),
therefore I assume we can safely skip it when memcgs are disabled via
"cgroup_disable=memory". From perf results I also see no hits on this
function when CONFIG_MEMCG=n.
However, looking into the code, I'm not sure why it should depend on
CONFIG_MEMCG. But it's Friday night and I might be missing some
details here...
