    SubjectRe: Swap area: why not more than 128M each?

    n different people (n>>3) already presented solutions for
    this. Maybe its time for linus/davem to select one of them?

    Someone posted a patch for 2.1.x and mkswap which will allow for swap
    partitions larger than 128MB (all of which actually used ;-)

    Stephen Tweedie said that he will roll those kernel level changes into
    his next set of changes to the 2.1.x swaping code.
