Bug Description

[SRU justification]
The memory.py plugin generate an error

The swapon information is unavailable on Trusty

Replace command by 'swapon -s'

[Test Case]
Run the sosreport memory plugin :
$ sudo sosreport --batch -omemory

Without the patch, the file sos_commands/memory/swapon_--bytes_--show will only contain an error. With the patch, the file will be replaced by sos_commands/memory/swapon_-s which will contain the result of swapon -s

None, only one command replaced

[Original description of the problem]
swapon from trusty, used by sosreport since 3.2, doesn't support the option --show.
