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.
