kswapd sucking up 30 - 50% CPU

I have an arm system with 32 MB ram.  When I run a process, kswapd
starts sucking up lots and lots of CPU - like 30 to 50%.

There's no swap on the system, and free shows 12 out of the available 28
MB is free.

Is there any way to turn off kswapd?  Any /proc settings I can use to
shut it down?

I'd start by understanding why you are seeing the unusual activity.
turning off the kernel swapping is going to hide or obfuscate a deeper
problem in your system.
