[PATCH] zram-swap: drop the conditional dependency on swap-utils

The original idea was to pull-in swap-utils when the required BusyBox utilities
were unavailable. However, this made the zram-swap package strictly depend on
swap-utils when using the image builder, which is incorrect. Moreover,
swap-utils dropped the swapon/swapoff utilities years ago.

Let's just drop this dependency. BusyBox in the official builds includes the
required applets. I believe it's safe to assume people doing their own builds
and customising the configuration of BusyBox know what they're doing, since no
other package verifies and/or depends on specific BUSYBOX_* symbols.
