Fix swiper jumping incorrectly to the first match #1791

To reproduce the problem:

  1. have a file with content
  1. go to third line ccc
  2. M-x swiper
  3. type in a one at a time and observe selection to jump to the first line after typing the second a.

The expected behavior would be to stay at the fourth line, instead of jumping to the first.

When I work with some large files, swiper sometimes jump to thousands of lines above (which have identical content), when I only want to search in the vicinity.

My quick fix is to modify ivy--recompute-index to ensure calling the designated function in ivy-index-functions-alist at least for the swiper caller. There might be some better handling of the control flow than mine here.
