mm/swapfile.c: move inode_lock out of claim_swapfile

claim_swapfile() currently keeps the inode locked when it is successful,
or the file is already swapfile (with -EBUSY).  And, on the other error
cases, it does not lock the inode.

This inconsistency of the lock state and return value is quite confusing
and actually causing a bad unlock balance as below in the "bad_swap"
section of __do_sys_swapon().

This commit fixes this issue by moving the inode_lock() and IS_SWAPFILE
check out of claim_swapfile().  The inode is unlocked in
"bad_swap_unlock_inode" section, so that the inode is ensured to be
unlocked at "bad_swap".  Thus, error handling codes after the locking now
jumps to "bad_swap_unlock_inode" instead of "bad_swap".

    WARNING: bad unlock balance detected!
    5.5.0-rc7+ #176 Not tainted
    swapon/4294 is trying to release lock (&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key) at: __do_sys_swapon+0x94b/0x3550
    but there are no more locks to release!

    other info that might help us debug this:
    no locks held by swapon/4294.
